Twitter isn’t about a 140-character limit. It’s not about a timeline. It’s not about your joke going viral, or getting Justin Bieber to follow you by any means necessary. It’s about a single question, the one you see when you first load twitter.com: “What’s happening?”
Twitters newly-revealed Project Lightning, will be the core feature of Twitter going forward.
Lightning will make Twitter more accessible, simpler, and friendlier. And it’ll work precisely because it dispenses with everything we currently know about Twitter.
