Dear Twitter (and everyone else), please end your obsession with autoplay!

Twitter has just introduced auto-playing video, Vines and gifs on mobile. “Oh great!” you may say: “Just what we needed! … more things to, er, chew through our data and battery life?”To be fair to Twitter, you can opt out and revert to click-to-play (see below), but Twitter could have just made autoplay opt in. Instead it is forcing users to hunt out a setting and check a box just to keep things the way they were.
