Design Twitter How important is Consistency for us?


Q: How important is Consistency for us?


I think that depends on scenarios:

  1. If I am tweeting I expect it to be highly consistent.
  2. If I am just scrolling, weak consistency is acceptable.


If I’m scrolling a series of tweets by the same person, it should be consistent too. Otherwise the topic may be hard to understand as in the case of messaging app.


If it had a comment feature on a tweet, then we needed consistency. In this problem scope where we are considering only post, like, share(not sure), availability is more important than consistency.
