I don’t know who Justin Bieber is. So I looked him up. Now, I know who Justin Bieber is, but I still don’t care. He might be a great guy, and he might be super-popular, but he’s of zero interest to me and seeing him featured permanently in trending topics is not only irrelevant, but increasingly irritating.
I want to roll my mouse over to trending topics, and see a little X appear next to Justin’s name. And when I click on it, I want Twitter to say, “Okay, Justin Bieber will no longer appear in trending topics for you.”
I want to, but I can’t. Really, Twitter, is that too much to ask?
