New Twitter API response in one simple graphic
Joyce Park stashed this in Tech biz
Stashed in: Twitter!, Software!, I see what you did there., @jack, DO NOT WANT!, Sticking it to The Man!, Infographics!, Your argument is invalid., APIs, NOT GOOD, Jerk Store, Oh snap!, @dickc, Business
And remember: they're obviously going to get into the other three quadrants too! So long and thanks for all the fish...
I'm guessing you found that image somewhere on Twitter.
Hell hath no fury like a developer community scorned.
Ryan Sarver from Twitter says about the stuff labeled "Shit no one cares about" above, that those other three quadrants are "incredibly interesting" and have "more revenue potential for devs".
For what it's worth.
@troutgirl responded, "ENTERPRISE SOFTWARE, FUCK YEAH!!! What could be more incredibly interesting than that? Oh right... CONSUMER."
If enterprise software is so awesome why isn't Twitter doing it?
Then @b6n chimes in, "The revenue potential is either low or unproven, otherwise Twitter would take it themselves."
To which @rsarver replies, "What data do you have to back that up? Just because you don't use the products doesn't mean it doesn't exist."
@b6n responds, "My argument is not about the quality or utility of the products, but about how Twitter operates."
@rsarver replies, "Not true. it isn't a zero sum game. you need a healthy ecosystem to serve the diverse needs. not one company or product."
