Illustration for article titled How Twitter Is Trying To Retain Users

Twitter’s stock price has fallen in recent months amid growing concerns that the microblogging site is losing steam among users and having trouble finding a mainstream audience. Here are some ways the social network is planning to stay relevant, competitive, and attractive to new members:

  • Site to be made more PalmPilot-friendly
  • Racial slurs no longer factored into available number of characters
  • Removing cumbersome password protection to help users sign into their accounts quickly and easily
  • Getting a few celebrities to use Twitter
  • 400 new followers gifted to anyone who doesn’t openly make the internet worse with every tweet
  • More powerful content delivery engine that allows users to tweet up to 5,000 times a second
  • The date users wished they had never joined Twitter now displayed alongside biographical information and location
  • Twitter employees encouraging family members to sign up
  • Users can now share Excel spreadsheets
  • Improving Twitter feeds by removing all exposure to thoughts and opinions of others
