Thread: Comments on Costolo talk.

I didn’t catch the whole of Dick Costolo’s talk with Emily Bell at ONA, but I did get to hear the part about developers and APIs. I think this part also relates indirectly to journalists who use Twitter.

1. Twitter will provide a way for users to download their history of posts to Twitter.

2. Think of 140 characters as a caption. This is consistent with what they’re doing. People who argue that 140 characters is some kind of sacred limit are wrong. They should listen to what Costolo says.

3. Emily Bell did a great interview. The audience questions were also right on.
