The Evolution of Twitter as a Night Club - Page 2
The Twitter club owners said, "Geez, we're sort of blowing up here. Maybe we need to start letting more people into this club, start a VIP section and do the velvet rope thing (verified accounts)."
With the VIP section came the celebs: hockey players, hoops stars, movie studs, rap artists, etc....you name it, they all showed up at the club. Now, because of the celebrity factor, the club was swelling to the point where it was running out of capacity (fail whale). The club just couldn't handle the eagerness of the club goers.
Eventually the club had to expand and accommodate the wide array of club goers — from geeks, moms, celebs, politicians, media-types, etc. The club was packed and buzzing.
As the crowds swelled and swelled, one thing became apparent...it was hard to find that guy from Chicago you chatted with back in 2007 about how unbelievable it was that MySpace tanked so quickly and how Facebook was swelling to hundreds of millions of users.
Fast forward to today and the Twitter club is a mess. It's stacked with all types of club goers, all pushing their own agendas and business cards (content). There is a waiting line outside that stretches 10 city blocks and back. Only the cool kids are let into the club. It's so crowded in there now that it's hard to hear yourself think, never mind have a conversation with people.
The question is, how big can this club get and will any other clubs be created to help those of who really want to connect with people do so without all the noise?
What do you think?
