I was discussing some project ideas with a friend in 2005. I remember telling him, with a lot of confidence, that “Communication is absolutely the wrong problem to solve right now. It has been solved in all shapes and forms possible”.
Jack Dorsey sent out the first tweet on March 21, 2006.
The lesson, obviously, is that for a basic human need that is as important as communication, there will never be an “it is over” moment. Things like this, will always evolve. In other words, there will always be a Next Big Thing. We borrowed the N+1 theory from Fred Wilson:
“The N+1 Theory states that there is always one more of anything. I have found that most of the time, there is always more where you think there is nothing left. You may have to look a little harder/deeper but it is there.”
Back to our question then: If Twitter was Facebook’s N+1, what would be Twitter’s N+1?
Could it be an activity easier than tweeting? Could it be more realtime? Could it take more advantage of the supercomputers we all carry in our pockets?
What could be a really impactful N+1 for Twitter? Something that could be next in line to this: Like Us On Facebook. Follow Us On Twitter. ??? On ???
