Evaluate user onboarding and assess user control over content & privacy
You saw that your number-one celebrity is active on Twitter. In order to stay up to date with him/her, you want to give Twitter a try. Have you used Twitter before?
Please create an account for yourself. Go through the entire registration process. You can use fake information to do so.
Please explain how Twitter works. - If you have used it before, please show us the different parts of the website. - If you haven't used it before, please explore the website for a couple of minutes (remember to say your thoughts out loud)
What does 'Following' mean in the context of Twitter?
AnswerFollowing means exactly that, in terms of staying updated on news and status updates on a person or company or other entity on Twitter. So if one is following an entity, one is able to see everything that the entity has on their page and perhaps who they follow if they allow this.
'Following' someone on Twitter means that their 'Tweets' (posts) will appear on your profile. Please go ahead and follow someone.
What does 'Retweet' mean in the context of Twitter?
You are very happy as a @Userbrain tester and therefore, want to tell the world about it. Go ahead and write your first tweet.
Oh no – you said something politically incorrect! Delete your latest post and make sure it's gone forever.
How would you describe your experience? What could be improved?
AnswerI keep getting email notifications on the very same Twitter follows, is there a way to diversify what kinds of notifications (from who) fall into my email inbox? I love the fact that Tweets can be deleted across the board or Twitter land and not just from my profile. I like the current way of keeping accounts private (meaning that accounts are not searcheable/discoverable online) except within Twitter and this can also be limited to who can find you or follow you within Twitter. Also, could you make the process of making an account private less complicated. By this I mean that it takes me several minutes to locate the exact place in the navigation to go to, in order to make my account private or public.
