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


Click = big

Google is listening.

And beyond that, they are acting. And fast.

Early on, I complained about the text accompanying link insertions being non-editable. Twenty-four hours later, this appeared:


Click = big

I don’t think that’s coincidental.

Others have yelled about Google+ requiring gender to be public and that policy was changed — after a few days of debate, I think it was. But it was changed.

And now I’m not having any problems with Google+ loading with the latest Opera. I used to have to stop building the page, because it’d get frozen, and a Refresh would make it then load completely. Nothing has changed on my end at all to account for this new behavior.

Twitter might be listening, but Twitter doesn’t seem to be doing anything.

They’re still envisioning their payday, now yakking up removing friction from commerce.

Commerce is entirely secondary to the Twitter experience.

Pay attention to the Twitter experience!

Let me repeat:
