I swear that Twitter will go down in the Internet history books as one of the most talked about companies out of the whole Web 2.0 era. One has to wonder though if it will even be making money by the time Web 3.0 rolls around. That is if we end up calling it Web 3.0 at all because if Scoble has his way it’ll be called something more like 2010 Web.
This of course is Robert’s idea of how we should be approaching the web, which Chris Brogan would like to see Robert expand into a book, and in his post explaining it took a swipe at Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg. However Kara took some time and provided us with an excellent point by point smackdown of Scooby-Don’t.
What did that have to do with Twitter? Nothing but I just wanted to pass along something that gave me a good chuckle today. Now on to our regular scheduled Twitter nausea.
Want Your Service Integrated With TweetDeck? It’ll Cost You A Cool $50,000 via TechCrunch – Once more we see how companies being built on top of Twitter are finding ways to make money; but $50,000 to have TweetDeck include your service inside of their Twitter client is a bit much.
Harvard Twitter Study Uncovers Big Gender Gap Compared With Other Social Networks via SiliconValleyWatcher – gee a gender gap – who woulda thought. Is this even important?
Google Trends shows drops in Twitter news coverage, search volume via VentureBeat – Google Trends might be noticing a drop of some sort but from where the rest of us are sitting it sure doesn’t seem so.
TweetStats Down More than 24 Hours As Twitter Attacks Cache Issues via Louis Gray – ya it makes so much sense to try and build a business, or invest a major development effort, on top of Twitter, a business that is as about as flaky as a hooker on crack.
The “Turnabout is Fair Play” Strategy for Twitter Auto DMs via I’m Not Actually a Geek – turnabout is fair play is right. chalk one up for Hutch’s idea and I vote we adopted this as the preferred method to get back at these DM’ing dickwads.
