Really good question. Don't you think someone will develop a version that can actually set up private groups or work groups? Can it scale?

Adam Cohen

Hi Beth - I hope that twitter will make a leap into an enterprise tool. In order to do that it has to be able to filter or make connections more private in some way. I for one would love for everyone in my company to be on twitter, but to do that we'd have to have a private group to work in and our tweets could not (and should not) be in the public timeline.

Remember the scene in Bruce Almighty when he is responding to prayers via computer? No time to read it all, it just becomes a blur. I'm concerned twitter will become a pool of noise for most users unless there are options to help people manage their connections more appropriately.

Great post (which I found through Beth's blog)

As far as the question of private tweet groups, Chris Brogan had written about a service: http://grouptweet.com/

About a thousand cuts

  • "Death by a thousand cuts" is just a great expression, isn't it? Anyone who has been through a tough project has heard it before. I like to think of this blog as the opposite. Navigating through all those issues to achieve excellence is a passion of mine, along with being a dad to three amazing boys and all things Red Sox and Patriots. Thanks to Len Devanna for pushing me to start capturing my thoughts and Lee Cullivan for the banner photo. More about me here. Thanks for reading.
