Twitter does not seem much like an online community when people threten and demand it be fixed, instead of becomming helpful in some way. When people on my following list do this, I feel like I'm finding out they are accustomed to calling the waitress over by snappong fingers and whistling, like they would for a dog, as I have just sat down to dinner with them. I realize Twitter now must move at the pace of business, as much business is done via twitter. Smart business, of course, reaches for the most effective tools, but, will moving en masse land them with a winning and equilly helpful combonation? I'm thinking death by committee style botch job. Web 2.0 is about being social, from what I gather, and porting friends to places that better suit the user's needs is common. Am I being "backwards" for hoping all of twitter stays together? (I occasionally check in on an old fave irc channel where some know each other so long, [16+ years, most starting out in their 30s], they comfortibly herass at the employer and local police levels). A universial 140 (character) catcher is a 2.0 type of solution it takes me a minute to remember as a solution. It seemed like providers like Twitter were part of the community it cearted, mayb3e only when things are going well.
