Mar 31 '11 at 14:35 comment added Charles Boyung @Steve - desktop clients are different than the web. People have expectations on how specific interface elements work on web pages. That expectation is what is getting attacked by these changes. Desktop clients do not have that same expectation because there has always been far greater disparity in how things work from app to app and platform to platform.
Mar 31 '11 at 14:24 comment added Steve Mitcham @Charles I will concede your point that the extra keystroke is meaningless; however, I was referring to the desktop clients, not the twitter website.
Mar 30 '11 at 16:19 comment added Charles Boyung @Steve - And your point is? It is one extra keystroke. Big deal. That one extra keystroke for a select few users is more important than the irritation this causes a much larger set of users? That is what we call poor UI design. Oh, and the Twitter website does not submit when you hit enter, at least it didn't last night when I was out there.
Mar 30 '11 at 15:59 comment added Steve Mitcham @Charles I could, but that's one extra keystroke. One other thought here is that having enter send the comment directly is how my Twitter and IM clients work so I guess I think of the comment blocks more like IM style messages than the full posts.
Mar 29 '11 at 16:24 comment added gef05 @neoneye. "Afraid"? It's my preference as a user. I can't type, so the mouse is my tool of choice.
Mar 29 '11 at 16:07 comment added Charles Boyung @neoneye - what is wrong with using the mouse? Why is there such a derision towards mouse use? I agree that it can be slower, but it is definitely easier for less savvy computer users, and that group will definitely be greater than its converse for as long as we're all doing this job.
Mar 29 '11 at 15:43 comment added neoneye I have seen many people being afraid of using the keyboard. They type in the text into the textarea and then reaches out for the mouse to click the submit button. I hope that facebooks recent move will help people become better at not depend on the mouse.
Mar 29 '11 at 13:01 comment added Charles Boyung Why couldn't you just hit Tab then Enter? That extra keystroke doesn't really add that much. You have to do that anyways when posting an answer; why make comments so different?
