Image via CrunchBaseOn Thursday I put out this blog post: Twitter: The Obvious Missing Features.
When someone replies to one of my tweets, I should not have to right click and open up a new tab with that tweet of mine to figure out what exactly that person replied to.On Friday TechCrunch put out this blog post: Might Threaded Conversations Be Coming To Twitter?
one area that’s still lacking is a good way to view conversations. Clicking on the “in reply to” links is tedious for long conversations. ..... Twitoaster’s speciality was the threaded conversation view it gave to tweets. ...... Another key focus of Twitoaster is tweet archiving. That’s another feature Twitter could definitely improve upon. Currently, thanks to Twitter’s search limitations, once a tweet is a couple of months old, it’s basically lost in the Twitter.com ether. If Twitter had a better archiving mechanism for old tweets, it could extend the life of them, and make them much more useful.Saturday, Twitoaster's Blog: I'm Going To Work At Twitter
and it’s going to be awesome at Twitter! :)It is a good feeling. I call it my vision resonance. If I am not the one being read, I am in tune. This reminds me of when TechCrunch, several months back, published many private documents of Twitter. Twitter had its own iPhone 4 moment. One of the things that emerged from all that was that the Twitter team was talking about "a billion people on Twitter" around the same time I was talking about a billion people on Twitter at this blog. That was a good feeling. I felt like I had vision resonance.

I am really good at the vision thing, aren't I?
