How wrong I was

A random spammy comment comes in on an old post, driving me back to look at a pair of posts I wrote two years ago: Oh my God, they killed Twitter! and My first morning in the New World.

They were both written at around the time Twitter turned off the part of their service that I had used a huge amount at the time, the SMS messages.

Now it’s hard to imagine Twitter working that way. At the time they turned it off, it had just started to tip a balance for me personally that the number of messages I was getting was a little OTT. I follow far more people now than I ever did when I still got the messages by text.

And Twitter appears to be going from strength to strength, despite my Cassandra predictions 24 months ago. 3G mobile internet has become more a part of my life than I ever imagined it would.
