No, I do not like to scroll down. No, I don't like it when I have to undertake an extra action to see what I want to see.
When I visit someone's twitter profile, I would probably like to undertake one of the following actions.
- read his or her tweets
- follow his or her tweets
- tweet to that specific account
- find out who he or she is
He or she can of course also refer to a band, company or whatever the twitter profile is representing on the medium.
Here is what I probably don't want to see at first glance when I visit a twitter profile
- a big ass cover picture covering half of my screen
- one or no tweets of this account
- no possibility of tweeting to this account
When I want to undertake the actions of my first list, I need to scroll down to complete intentions 1 (read more than one tweet) and 3 (tweet to that account). That is, if I were not to be horrified by the account's cover picture.
Dear twitter, please update the profile pages with some common - user experience - sense because, no, I don't like what I see.
