On the front lines of Twitter with founders Stone and Williams

From today’s Wall Street Journal (Saturday/Sunday, April 18 – 19, 2009, p. A11):

THE WEEKEND INTERVIEW with Evan Williams and Biz Stone / By Michael S. Malone

The Twitter Revolution

From the article:

“Under the guise of a fun communications tool, Twitter is building one of the world’s most valuable real-time information caches.”

One thought on “On the front lines of Twitter with founders Stone and Williams

  1. I think for Twitter to succeed as a real-time search engine, it needs better filtering and tagging. Each user should be able to tag his/her own tweets (without having use #tags or use up any of the 140-character limit) AND do the same for any tweets by other users. Also, once Twitter becomes a search engine, they’ll have to worry about filtering out spam as well.

    Those guys are more than clever enough, though, so I’m sure they have interesting things up their sleeve.
