There is a growing meme around Wordpress latest theme called Prologue.
Some predict this could threaten Twitter.
I don’t think so.
I could never imagine using Prologue the way I use Twitter. If you take a look at my Twitter updates over the past week and the interactions I’ve had with Charlie, Eric, Brad, Rafer, Dave, Fred etc it’s over a wide range of topics and with a range of different folks.
Sometimes I will send someone a direct message or a replyto or just a public tweet.
Just last week I was able to quickly find a native Dutch speaker to help translate a document by sending out a help request on Twitter. That’s random and even more special was I received multiple messages from folks offering to help.
And since I track the word “bijan” I can even get twitter posts from folks at aren’t in my immediate twitter network.
Twitter is a messaging platform that is as open as I want or as narrow as I want and always on.
