This Is What Twitter Does Not Want To Happen, Part Three

And it goes to an in-depth post at Google+!

A conversation that should have remained in Twitter will now take place at its new competitor, Google+.

Twitter is slowly going to be bled to death by a thousand cuts like this.

Because every time someone clicks out of Twitter to Google+, they will use Google+ more — and at some point they will realize it allows them to do more.

    It is even worse than it appears for Twitter. The Google+ APIs are coming. When that happens, third-party Twitter clients will start baking in Google+ integration, especially because Twitter has been kicking their developers all year.

    What does Twitter do in response?

    Do nothing? The bleeding increases. Backbone users, after all, are big fans of third-party clients.

    Kick developers who dare to integrate with Google+? That sounds like it would generate a devastating backlash.

    Buy more clients / pay developers to favor Twitter? That doesn’t sound sustainable.

    Alternatives?
