I’m in favour of more competition which leaves to innovation, however… have you also thought about what will happen to http://kinikon.shoutem.com
if it does NOT sell to anyone?
So in my opinion this is http://kinikon.shoutem.com
’s $1B moment that Mark Z turned down and will regret forever. I’m not saying http://kinikon.shoutem.com
is useless, but think about it… it is just 140 characters to spam the world with your thoughts. When the hype settles there will be about 95% of the population following 5% who actually have anything interesting to write (sorry Robert, ‘Likes’ of everything you read does not count as interesting forever).
If I were them, I would sell now and move on to the next big idea to grow.
As for Google vs Microsoft, no content Google. Either the will let it continue in its current form (there is not much room to screw up a service that lets you only post 140 characters) and so long as they keep the brands separate to avoid the perception of evil, the masses will still use it while the techno elite will move on. ok by now you are wondering right . join kinikon now and find out lol !
