Only 200,000 Regular Twitter Users?

30Apr08

Every blog post I’ve read recently has been hyping the benefits of Twitter. This post by TechCrunch indicates that only 200,000 users are active. So what’s the big deal about Twitter? It has 0 chance of making it into the mainstream and seemingly has no business model. They’ve probably left it too late to monetize and once the next shiny web app comes along,

I have a feeling that Twitter will be sunk. Look beyond the echo chamber of tech blogs and nobody is talking about this app. Facebook and Myspace have penetrated the public consciousness, but nobody I talk to has even heard of Twitter. The best chance they have of making a profit on this venture is if Google or Yahoo buys it. Is waiting for somebody to buy your company a business plan though?
