Settle down now Twitter

TweetPics

So there have been image services floating around Twitter for a while. No biggie. But the gears are in motion for this happening officially, and sooner or later it’s gonna be insta-tweet pictures right into the feed.

Twitter IMO evolved as an offshoot of Facebook. Someone took note of just how addicted people were to status updates; not directed at anyone, just little adrenaline shots of ego cast out into the ether like “Janey is doing some laundry, finding spare change!!” and soon enough, here we are in the present day and Twitter is sitting at the cool kid’s table.

But what’s after Pics? Videos, yah? and then game applications, and birthday trackers, and friend suggestiosn, and you see where I’m going with this. Twitter needs to watch out because losing your identity out in the internets is a real possibility.

I don’t think they’re in serious danger, this is clearly conjecture; there’s too many people getting addicted to Twitter right at this very moment to do any reality based stormcrowing. But the hottest flames, they say, burn out the fastest and Twitter needs to stay unique, simple, and fun.

Little things like ExecTweets or whatever harebrained moneymaking scheme they come up with next; they’ve gotta do what they’ve gotta do, it is a business. I get that they can’t just sit around twiddling their thumbs over at the Twitter office space. But the next big thing is always around the corner and if they move in the wrong direction as they attempt to capitalize on their current flavor of the month status could go badly for them in the long term.
