In this post — Why Twitter Should Buy webdoc If Apple Won’t — I called for Twitter to acquire webdoc.
The key reason being that Twitter has become too important as a crowd-sourced collection of news, information, and knowledge.
As long as it continues its ephemeral nature (try using Search Twitter to see what I mean!), sooner or later people will abandon it because it’s not serving their grown-up requirements.
The most important of which is to be able to go back and find that news, information, and knowledge that it contains.
