Eric Eldon is reporting that Twitter traffic rising not falling. Kara Swisher challenged everyone yesterday and posed the question will Twitter fail. That got the elite in the blogosphere talking. I believe that I was the only one who took the bold position that twitter will FAIL.
I immediately got twitters from folks like Danny Sullivan and others like Danny who know what they are talking about. Fact is my prediction is this: Twitter the company will fail but not Twitter the paradigm. Why do I say this? Because Twitter’s innovation (product gurus) could be their downfall. They need to think like infrastructure or operating systems people not AJAX developers – meaning get some core IP defined and owned it fast otherwise the core asset runs out of control.
Some may disagree with me and that’s fine. I’d love to debate it anytime here at 654 High Street, Palo Alto, CA – the new home of the Social MediaHaus or on Twitter: @Furrier
