The Devil of Details
|Growth clouded by crowds.|
First, in her write-up of Twitter’s new funding and board members on All Things Digital, Kara Swisher posted the original and edited versions of Twitter CEO Dick Costolo’s blog post. I wonder why the changes were made, and if anyone asked the Twitter Communications Team to explain. I don’t find anything wrong with editing the original post—I edit these when I find errors or better ways to say something —but it would be nice to find out why they felt changes were necessary.
Second, Mashable posted an article detailing how Twitter users have changed in the past year. Obviously, Twitter’s growth has been phenomenal, but the insight Sysomos provides seems to show that users are taking their profile details and follower ratios more seriously. It’s still sad to see that less than 25 percent of Twitter users account for 90 percent of all the service’s updates. But as I am definitely part of that 25 percent, I’ll see you on the ‘morrow, on the Web.
