Recently, I blogged about Twitter’s latest release about Super Follows.
Since then I’ve been thinking some more about it.
Let’s talk about that!
Like all the social media platforms, Twitter has been at the center of a storm since the 2016 US Presidential election.
For better or worse, Twitter has had to change the way it manages its application.
Growing followers is a lot harder than it once was.
Twitter has finally stepped up and is trying to moderate the discussions contained therein.
(Good luck with that one!)
This has had the predictable consequence of competitors springing up.
For me the jury’s still out on whether any of these will be long term viable players.
Moves like Super Follows look like knee jerk reactions to what’s going on at other platforms.
There have been other moves by Twitter but nothing IMHO that’s original.
Twitter seems to be merely responding to its competitors.
What’s next, sports betting?
(Actually, that would probably be a guaranteed money maker for them!)
I just don’t see where they’re going with all this.
Now, don’t get me wrong.
I still believe that Twitter is the place to be.
I’m just hoping that they don’t kill the Golden Goose.
I’ll be keeping an eye on things over there so drop back to see what I’m blogging about!
That’s it for now!
