No, Web-e-@ndo no se ha vuelto monotemático. Solo que me gustó este post que recomendó @jlori. John Batelle, uno de los fundadores de la revista Wired, equipara a Twitter con YouTube. ¿Por qué? Pues lean:
So think about that. YouTube was the single fastest growing new form of search on the Web, and Google pretty much outflanked (and outspent) everyone to buy it. Not to get into video monetization, per se, but to harvest and control the most important emerging form of search. In short, Google could not afford to NOT own YouTube.
So, fast forward to today. What’s the most important and quickly growing form of search on the web today? Real time, conversational search. And who’s the YouTube of real time search? Yep. Twitter. It’s an asset Google cannot afford to not own, and also, one they most likely do not have the ability (or brand permission) to build on their own.
Y me rehuso aún a calificar a ‘Tuiter’ como red social. Ya tengo un nuevo nombre: real time conversational tool™.
