SCAMPER is a technique you can use to spark your creativity and help you overcome any challenge you may be facing. In essence, SCAMPER is a general-purpose checklist with idea-spurring questions — which is both easy to use and surprisingly powerful. It was created by Bob Eberle in the early 70s, and it definitely stood the test of time

Now the authors were going to try the SCAMPER method to be applied for Twitter

S = Substitute
Substitute the use of trending topic into the most retweeted tweets. Show, whats the most retweeted tweets.
C = Combine
Combine the function of private account and block feature. The user can hide their tweets to several people, they want to show it to public, several friends,group, or wants to hide the tweets to their block user. So, the user will feel safer. Instead of using private account, and their tweets can not be shown by other people but only they followers.
A = Adapt
Adapt the new timeline interface. Especially in mobile version. The new timeline will no more showing one by one tweets. It will show more than 5 tweets at one time, the tweets will be showig in different box , and the size will be according to its long.
M = Magnify
Enlarge the tweets character, so user can tweets more than 200 words.
P = Put to Other Uses
Put  the “favorite” feature , into several parts, based on their interest. And, there will be a group based on each interest. Users will discuss more about their interest there.
E = Eliminate (or Minify)
Eliminate the system of direct message, that only allow user to send direct message to people who following them.
R = Rearrange (or Reverse)
when someone first create their account on twitter, twitter should ask their interest, their must choose 5 tweets they like. And then, twitter will directly make them following the people who tweets they like. It will be easier for twitter user to find their interest through twitter
