As Twitter Matures, what's on the Horizon?

In the first of two posts by Peter Yared at VentureBeat, he asserts that "as Twitter becomes the go-to source of information for news, celebrities and more, it’s differentiated from Facebook, which is very focused on what your friends are posting."  Based on this insight, he goes on to suggest a few opportunities for the microblogging platform in upcoming years.  You can read the inspired full post here.

In short, below are the (mostly interface) advancements he suggests:
  • Integrate a dynamic news view
  • Offer news streams for events and locations -
  • Show photos, videos and other media inline
  • Develop inline comment threads
  • Improve search
  • Develop more Twitter widgets for websites
