Dave Winer and Michael Gartenberg on Twitter
Scripting News: The future of Twitter?: “I’m very reluctant to dismiss Twitter as a passing fad, aware that many people said that about blogging, and I was sure they were wrong, and they were. Whenever so many people are so excited about something there must be some substance. It’s the same reasoning that makes me reject the idea that George W. Bush is stupid. You don’t get to be President and be stupid, and nothing frivolous gets to be as popular as quickly as Twitter has.”
and Michael Gartenberg:
“Perhaps I need to give it another try but it seems to me, this is going to be a really short lived fad. I could see where a group of good friends might use it under certain circumstances but long term? no way.”
It will be interesting to see where Twitter is one year from now. I think it’s here to stay.
