Why Evan Made a Smart Move

Om and I seem to be of the same mind. Biggest gamble on this deal: What the currency of Facebook stock is worth. That, and I take Evan at his word that he wants to keep building Twitter. After all, it's not all about money, particularly for people who've already made money. Twitter is a one of the biggest ideas in Web 2.0 and the team knows that doesn't just come around because you decide, "Ok we sold that one, what next?"

He's right. Twittering will penetrate society even deeper than 'blogging' has. And now they can put together a amazing dream team to parent it from phenom to social norm.

Yes any service could duplicate the service, but the network size and the API-openess is all that matters now, and while they may have a peer or two (there always seems to be 3 leaders for a great product) Twitter will always be at the pole position.

It'll be great fun to watch. I wish'em the best.
