Aren’t we spoiled? Expecting everything to work with one single click may seem like a luxury to many others who did not grow up with the advantages of the world wide web, the online shopping, networking and sharing. But for the need-to-have-it-right-now generation that’s a day to day expectation.
I often catch myself losing my patience when I do not get through a webpage in less than a fraction of the second! For example, this post is inspired by Twitter and its support issues that recently started bugging me. Being not able to send my tweets and making me refresh the page without the issue being resolved is not what I expect from the largest news sharing micro blogging platform…
Yes, I may sound frustrated and you didn’t get it wrong as that’s how I really feel. I know the service is for free and is usually very reliable but recently it doesn’t work the way it should or at least the way we expect it to.
And this frustration of mine is based on the consequences of the developing technology which spoiled all of us. I am sure you have experienced a similar situation at least once this week. Getting used to super fast internet connection and quickly loading pages, is something we take for granted. Although being aware of how much work goes into providing these fast services I still can reason my frustration which is coming from the habit to get everything at this very second.
This is where businesses offering exquisite and fast services pamper their users/customers who consequently have higher expectations.
Would you consider yourself as spoiled by the fast moving world?
Seems like the new Twitter does not have the same issue with sending tweets as the old one! Hopefully, it has been resolved for good. However, when I monitored the problem last week, apart from the hundreds of similar complaints I noticed also that someone found out that the micro blogging platform actually censors some tweets and that this could be the reason for not allowing you to send them. Big Twitter is watching us closely…
