Twitter’s New Stategy Statement is Irrelevant

Twitter:

Reach the largest daily audience in the world by connecting everyone to their world via our information sharing and distribution platform products and be one of the top revenue generating Internet companies in the world.

That’s 220 characters. If any company should be able to fit its strategy into a single tweet, it’s Twitter. So clunky. Worrisome that they can’t express themselves clearly.
I can just see the argument. “Let’s call them platforms.” “No, products.” “Platforms!” “Products!” “Wait, I’ve got it: platform products.”

I agree to every word of it. Also by forcefully inserting the “revenue generating” part to attract investors, they appeare desperate. If you are a business that generates revenue you will be out there.

It is sad to see that a platform I relied on for relevancy is alienating itself to their founding principles.
