something witty goes here…

Twitter goes independent, gets funding and becomes more interesting

I have a sort of irrational fascination with twitter service. In many ways this reminds of early 2003 when I first understood the real significance of blogging.

Twitter is a new form of communication. For better description on how this is different from existing forms of communication read this.

Today they announced that they have received funding from Union Ventures. Every social media startup would love to have Fred Wilson on their side. They have been successfully picking companies with huge user adoption, without worrying so much about the business model. That doesn’t mean Twitter doesn’t have a business model, it does have one. It’s not obvious at this point.

For us this means we need to spread the twitter love to our tools as well. Ajuby supporting Twitter API will be a good first step.

Good execution Twitter team! Congratulations.
