Twitter lost the plot?

I’ve always had Twitter’s widget on my main screen on my Android phone. Some days back I noticed it showing weird tweets from accounts I do not follow, but it took a while until I read the small print.

Are you fucking kidding me? If Twitter think their widget will remain on my home screen when they blatantly abuse my screen real estate then they really have lost their marbles. I removed the widget 1 second after creating the above screen shot, and if I see any other attempts to push ads down my throat, then the app will go too. In reality removing the widget probably mean I’ll never check Twitter anyway, so the damage is already done.

Bye bye Twitter.
