Thought Leaders Twitter Perspectives:

Big Bloggers Tweeting More, Blogging Less – Chris Pirillo

Chris Pirillo says more and more bloggers are tweeting instead of blogging.  He says, “…twitter augments blogging, it’s a different medium…”

The Evolution of Twitter as a Platform – Guy Kawasaki

Guy Kawasaki, co-founder of alltop.com says that twitter is moving away from personal chatter and becoming heavily used by brands.  Guy says, “Twitter is emulating the internet, and isn’t just turning into a marketing platform, but simply becoming a platform used for multiple things.”

Semantic Intelligence – Brian Solis

Brian believes that the next big twitter trend will be “a more intelligent Twitter experience” and “the future of Twitter is semantic intelligence, where what you click, what you read, and what you do, act to determine what you like, with applications serving you the tweets you really want.”

Twitter Curation – Steve Rubel

Steve believes that the demand for finding tweets of interest will continue to grow as there is more interest in organizing collections of tweets and Twitterers with the goal of packaging tweets into more digestible streams.

User Generated Twitter Lists – Leo Laporte

Leo believes Twitter’s new “Lists” to be huge and very important for improving the overall twitter experience (twitgeist) along with immense potential and power to all Twitterers.
