So, as Moore’s idea diffusion curve dictates Twitter is reaching the early and late majorities. Like Bebo, Myspace, YouTube and Facebook before them Twitter is reaching its maturity. We see the celebrity and mass market adoption of the media booming. However, like I did Facebook, I judge a social network’s maturity by when my parents sign up, and yes my dad has just joined Twitter.

Yes, Twitter keeps going up and up in traffic and memberships, but half of Twitter accounts have never been tweeted in. When people first hear about Twitter, I would wager 95% of them ask, "Why would I want to do that?" Has Twitter really reached maturity yet if most people don’t know what to do with it?

In today’s world of instant gratification, if your not changing and adding new content, then your falling behind and irrelavent.  It just means you have to hang on tight and enjoy the ride.

Really interesting point about Qik...I’ve been thinking that with the new iphone’s ability to instantly upload to youtube, crimes and injustices, as well as awesome, fun or embarrasing moments are going to be much harder to deny. Qik would take that to an even higher level if it got popular.

I think the next twitter builds on twitter. Twitter itself is not comparible to other socnets & is not going away unless the company goes under. It’s a communication channel on par with the telephone. Might as well ask what’s the next device to replace the phone? iPhone perhaps? Regardless, it’s still a phone. It’s just a multi device including a phone. Twitter is not going anywhere.
