The Twitter of Tomorrow

UPDATE: I caught myself today reposting something on twitter after having lunch with a close friend that didn’t see a link to something random.  I don’t view that as healthy behavior, but as the community evolves and the application doesn’t, users behaviors change.

So I took a screenshot of my friends below (these are people I really respect) and in a very snarky way, created what they would be in 5 years if the application didn’t evolve.  Note that these generalizations are ‘anyperson’ and not directed at the specific people.  I have a great amount of respect for them.

    Ha! Yea, it's gonna be a b!tch.

  • Oh lordy!

  • LOVE it.

    Sad to see spammers hit our beloved Twitter.

  • smazurov

    Poor Drew 🙁

  • BrackenC

    Funny. Would have been funnier with an assortment of “FAIL,” “PRO,” “NOOB,” and suchlike avatar overlays.

  • Love it. There's only a certain type of person who'll 'get it'. Alas, I'm that type of person. 🙂

  • That is so awesome!

  • It might start to look like that for most people, but I am going to filter my streams and prune away until it gets more intelligent and useful.

  • We're already there aren't we? lol

  • curiousjohn

    So painfully true and funny! However, twitter has the ultimate anti-spam mechanism, follow/unfollow/block. Gotta love it.

    Hey it's the kid who was all messed up in the car coming home from the dentist. Man, I wish he was on twitter!
