Social media dashboards. What can I say about them? How about that they should be fun to explore, simple to use, and most of all better than the individual sites that compose them. Well sometimes these dashboards fail and should really try again.
This is how I feel about TweetGrid. After choosing the 1x(insert number here) layout, a pale, tan-peachy color surrounds each tweet and boarders the screen. Then there are bright blue words (FAQ, TWEET, and more) with short, thick black lines separating them.
This has got to be the worst color combination I’ve ever seen. Did TweetGrid really pay someone to design this? The whole thing just looks completely unprofessional- and as we all know, social media is less “social” and more “professional” these days. I’d rather stay on the homepage than dive into the site.
Want to know the best part? (sarcasm intended here).
When I click on the “How To” leaf I’m brought to a page with video tutorials I can scroll through. But here’s where it gets good… I don’t see any videos. I see empty white boxes under each tutorials title.
On a positive note, the homepage design looks good… thanks, Wayne!
Anyways, TweetGrid should get rid of it’s awful color scheme and try again.
