This story on some potential upcoming changes to Twitter gives me hope that the folks steering the product are able to recognize that the platform is badly in need of repair and to consider some fairly big modifications. Removing the public like and retweet counts could potentially mitigate the mob-like atmosphere that pervades the social network.

Maybe Twitter can reclaim some of its former character?
