As the social network of choice for millennials, Twiggle is making some serious headway in the industry.
A lot of the buzz around the app is because it allows users to make up a name and set it as their own.
But there’s also a lot of buzz about Twiggle because it lets users create the perfect friend for their favorite celebrity, and it’s getting really popular with celebrities who have been getting in on the Twiggle craze.
The feature, however, isn’t without its detractors.
Some are concerned that Twiggle isn’t really meant for people who want to make friends.
“The whole point of Twiggle was to help people get to know each other, and that’s definitely not the case,” Twiggle CEO James Taylor told Forbes.
Taylor told the New York Times that people who use Twiggle will eventually “find themselves bored with that,” and he hopes to eventually remove the feature altogether.
“You have to take a page from the playbook of people who have created a bunch of friends on their own and then try to figure out how to make more,” he said.
The company says it’s adding new features to Twiggle every week, and in its latest update, the app has added the ability to create a new avatar, change your name, and even add new friends.
Taylor added that the app will eventually allow users to add their own pictures to the app.
The app’s first beta also added the option to create your own Facebook friends.
The new feature will be rolled out in the next few weeks.
Twiggle users will be able to also choose a profile picture for their friends, but that doesn’t seem to be a priority for many.
According to the Times, some users aren’t happy with the fact that they can’t create a custom photo.
“We’re not trying to make this thing like Tinder or OkCupid,” Taylor said.
“But if we can get enough people to like it, it’s a really cool thing that we can try to make.
And we’re really excited about it.”
For now, Taylor said that Twiggle is going to continue to work on making new features that allow users more customization.
“What we’re trying to do right now is figure out what’s really going to work and not just try to get to the next version of Twiggles features, which are really powerful,” he added.
It’s really important to us that the feature is the best it can be and that the users are satisfied.”
