A Twitter Concept

This might already exist and if it does then please let me know. BUT I was struck about tweaks to Twitter that would perhaps work well – that people may actually appreciate.

It would be cool to curate the content of our tweets a little more closely. The easiest way to explain it would be a love-child between G+ circles and Pinterest boards. We all tweet about a wide variety of things – day to day bits & more niche interests. Sometimes we follow a friend who’s daily tweets about their day are of interest to us – but who might also tweet about golfing results – wasted tweets that we skim over as they are of no interest to us.

The Future of Social Media

So what does the future of Social Media hold? Will we have status updates about hover cars, hover jumpers, hover pants? Or will social media be banned by the Chinese government as they occupy 94% of the globe… and 60% of the moon. Our ‘timelines’ may grow to define who we are, you may be declined a passport as your history is deemed ‘unsatisfactory’. Skiving work may become impossible as those dreaded drunken photos become public knowledge, easily viewed on a number of flat screens that occupy every surface… or on your hover watch, with built in projector. The potential future of social media is limited only by your imagination.
