All Things D: Twitter Guys: We’ll Still Be Running This Company in 5 Years

(BTW, don't you just love news stories that tell you something new?)

Meet the Internet’s It Boys: Twitter co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone. A year ago their “micromessaging” platform was unknown outside of a small circle of digerati. Now the service has broken through to the mainstream, or at least to the mainstream media (thanks, Oprah!). But while Twitter has no problem generating attention, it’s still unclear how the company will actually generate revenue.

And of course:

Twitter in TV deal

WASHINGTON (AFP) — Micro-blogging sensation Twitter is heading for another screen -- the TV screen.

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said in a post on the blog of the hot San Francisco-based startup that Twitter had entered into a "lightweight, non-exclusive, agreement" with TV producers Reveille and Brillstein.

Stone did not reveal any details about the project except to say it would not be for an "official Twitter TV show."

I'm programming my Tivo right now. (I would if I hadn't gotten rid of Tivo and cable but I'm certain it'll be on Hulu or Rev3.)

  • The frenzy peaked with Oprah

    I've experimented with Twitter myself and really see it as problematic.

    All it takes is just one--ONE blabber-mouth in your organization saying the wrong thing and you've got a major security breach or worse you gain exposure to being liable for what they said.

    It's a fad and it doesn't have sustainability or real viability.

    • celebrities aren't twitter

      When you get rid of all the celebrities and corporations trying to sell, what you have left is a community of like-minded people sharing links and info without having to subscribe to newsletters and check lots of different websites.

      You also get access to some of the best minds in your area of expertise, something you could never get in any other way unless knowing them personally.

    I've used twitter for over an year and find it
    is a more relevant search engine than Google.
    Sports fans will love it as you can have sports
    scores "tweeted" to you. As a baseball fan, I
    love having the lineups tweeted to me as soon
    as they're posted and enjoy chatting with other
    tweeters in real time. There are also CDC
    alerts, Amber alerts and stock alerts that can
    be directly tweeted to you. I see many
    possibilities for the service, just sad to see
    it go mainstream. It had a local internet charm
    all it's own, if it's possible to use Local and
    internet in the same sentence.

  • WTF? Show me your proof.

    Twitter is over and done with? How do you figure that. "Want more proof?" More? You haven't given any.

    If anything you've exposed the cemmenting of Twitter as a brand on it's way to google like proportions.

    I'm not interested in reading articles that are simply links to other pages; if the All Things D link is relevant then atleast tell me why you think it is and tell me why you included in your article.

    Thanks to this completely waste of time article I'm just so looking forward to your next insightful piece.

    See you in 25 days.

    Ah yes, the culture of "if it's popular enough for me to realize it's popular, it isn't cool". Screw that, enjoy what you enjoy and who cares if it's popular?
