As I’ve already written here, it’s natural that companies go into entrenchment mode when they need to switch from growth stage to monetization stage. Twitter is no exception. It was nice to have an awesome communications and messaging platform that many developers could use to build their apps on. Ecosystem has created many different apps for use-cases both on consumption and on content creation side.

But now the game has changed and this is not an amateur league anymore. Twitter needs an IPO and in order to make that omelet it is more than willing to break some eggs.

Unfortunately it will take at least a few years for anything competitive to emerge. And I am sure it will offer a different paradigm than Twitter does today.

Twitter’s move toward greater content control concerns experts

With Twitter’s recent moves pointing toward “media company,” there is a growing concern among technologists that a trend for greater content control will compromise both innovation and Twitter’s future in favor of short-term profits.
