Kanye West is fuming because Beyoncé didn’t get album of the year. He’s not the only one upset about something. Twitter CEO Richard Costolo was quoted saying “We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years.” He wants less crap and more cream to rise to the top.

They’ve been losing users due to social-media abuse. Costolo knows this is gonna be tricky and is ready to tackle the issue. Maybe success at this will be similar to how achievers cause less crap and more cream to rise to the top. Somewhere along the lines Costolo might go back to the Twitter roots.

The reason for Twitter is different from Facebook or Linkedin. Similarly, the purpose behind someone’s dream is different from another. Costolo will likely look at what gives Twitter its ratings and whether some factor(s) are underrated. Cream rises to the top by separating the over-inflated from the under-rated.

It’s been said ‘you get what you pay for.’ Another way of seeing this is ‘you get what you reward.’ So how might Twitter better reward cream in rising to the top? Maybe that’s the missing element in having Twitter clout or street cred. Building connections takes a few clicks but building clout takes much greater skill.

Some high-profile users have mixed feelings about social-media. Those who’ve been bullied or hacked are fuming as well. Costolo knows that if this isn’t fixed soon Twitter could be losing-out even more. So for Twitter and those who want to raise their profile, turn the cream of your dreams into better ratings.

Kanye West is again fuming. Thinks Beyoncé had no business losing. Didn’t get props for album of the year. Maybe her ‘Beyhive’ fans have no fear. West not the only one with a gripe. Twitter CEO feels he’s got to refresh the buzz and hype. He wants less crap getting the pop. And more cream rising to the top.

Users are dropping left and right. Social-media abuse and online flight. Fixing the mess gonna be tricky. Tackling the issues gonna be sticky. Success for Twitter not unlike that of achievers. Less crap and more cream add-up to believers. Maybe Twitter roots will come into play. If they’re gonna make any headway.

Twitter different from Linkedin or Facebook. Whether viewed from a smartphone or tablet nook. Purpose and dreams different from another. Even if you start out undercover. Time to look at Twitter rating scale. Before putting stuff up for sale. Separating factors that are overinflated. From those that are under-rated.

‘You get what you pay for’ some have said. ‘You get what you reward’ sticks in others’ head. How does Twitter get less crap and more cream to rise? Takes figuring out some reward as the prize. Maybe a missing element in Twitter clout or cred. Connections take a few clicks but clout’s better instead.

Some high-profile users have jumped ship. With mixed feelings about being social-media hip. Those bullied or even hacked. Are fuming or already been packed. Without fixing, Twitter could lose-out more. To others having better score. Raising your profile or dream rating. Is about letter cream do the elevating.

Tip: Cream rises to the top by separating the overinflated from the under-rated for a higher dream rating.
Talkback: So how might Twitter or others better reward their cream so that more of it rises to the top?
