Twitter's growth has apparently slowed.

Is that it? Or do you think it will continue to grow despite this blip?

There are apparently many social networking sites going up these days.
And those new sites will surely affect other old social media sites.
But I think twitter will stay and continue to grow, as long as people will remain active in using it. New media definitely will define the future of marketing. Cool

It's interesting to see the apparent shortening of the traditional product lifecycle. Sites like YouTube are now mature having only been through the rapid growth stage recently. Myspace has matured and is probably now in decline, Facebook is in a mature place now and Twitter is fast becoming mainstream.

It's a fad. A useful fad, but it won't stay popular forever.

Well surely twitter cant stay popular forever until and unless they evolve. Maybe in few years time twitter will be quite different from what we see now a days.

Interesting article on TechCrunch this week after a hacker had broken into Twitter.

OK, so they go from $400K in Q3 to 4 million $ in Q4 - right erm, and I assume they got the magic lepricon who sits on the bosses desk to work these figures out then!?

I don't think Goldman Sacs revenue went up by that much so how the heck they ever expect to make this money especially without an actual revenue stream is very, very curious. Maybe time to do a rain dance round the old money tree as I'm guessing their accounts dept is smoking something pretty serious. Smile

As for Twitter surviving - only if Google buy them and use the tweets in their search engine, or for some kindof delayed results search engine.

PS: Where the heck do people get $55m from in funding with no real business plan?

I do not see any reason to stop twitter growing except the spam, there are spam messages, garbage messages, bluntly following, and services create blunt followers and spread spam messages, if these problems solved , or even reduced twitter will keep growing until something new come up which is innovative and attractive enough to attract the mass.

I cant see twitter stalling right now, its amazing when you find out the latest news from your twitter posts before you see it on the news!
Its too important an application for people to stop using it right now. Although I have almost 4 times as many friends on my Facebook than twitter, all my friends are still reluctant to get a twitter, so I make sure I cross post from twitter to facebook!

In terms of growth currently they seem to be doing well if you measure it by "tweets" as I'm sure they said they were getting around a billion a day now. Must need some serious servers to deal with that lot!

Mind you, also looks like they're trying to actually make money by adding sponsored tweets in amongst the threads although last I heard this was only on the actual Twitter site and not the other bits and pieces. Not sure if that's gonna do them a lot of good adding it outside of Twitter itself, but maybe volume will help.

Looks like the main casualty now is Bebo not Twitter, although to a large degree they do different things.

everything hits its plateau and Twitter is probably close to there; so many inactive accounts...the numbers may increas but perhaps not the useful tweets.

I think it will remain a solid platform for many though - I use it a lot for real-time news searches

Interesting article here on TechCrunch suggesting that there could be a bidding war for Twitter, pushing the value of the company up around $4 billion Shocked

They're a venture capital firm, which is interesting in itself given all the talk of some of the webs big hitters snooping around the company.
