Twitter is having a second go at it, with one of their co-founders Jack Dorsey returning to the helm.
Whilst you have the ability to follow Obama, Snowden, Lebron. The challenge has been, sorting through the tweets, to see, to have and participate in the conversations.

And in a broadcast internet, that’s what we need.
