Google has made Twitter boring
Why has Twitter turned boring?
I’ve found several areas:
1. First experience.
2. Pictures and videos.
3. Control over content distribution.
4. No API, no auto pushing of content.
5. Signals are visible from who you excited and pissed off.
6. Auto flowing webpage.
So, let’s take each of these areas on, and talk about what Twitter could do to make users excited again.
With Twitter, I never understood the 140 character limit, or the idea that making people understand using #s and @s….
It just does not seem instinctive.
In Google+ you start off with writing the way you would normally. then you decide who you’re going to say it to.
If you drag and drop “Your Circles” it’s like a tweet.
If you drag and drop “Public,” it’s could be a blog post.
If you click on a just one friend, it can be an email.
This seems to make more sense than Facebook, or Twitter..
