Re: NBCU
@afwriter But I kind of get, and agree with, the "kill" portion of this concept. The viewers are kind of deciding what goes and stays. If it's not something that they are showing interest for, why bother wasting time on it. It only takes a short clip for social media users to recognize whether they like something or not.

Re: NBCU
Very true. Which is why I love twitter so much. Simple, short and to the point.

Each to their own and I get where you are coming from. I am of the opinion that the video needs to be as long as needed to get the idea across.

DCawrey,

I'm a long-format guy myself and know how you feel -- but in the long run, I think the long run is doomed.

Re: NBCU
I hate the short clips. I think they are for short attention spans. But maybe I'm not the target customer for this type of content. Providers need to cast a wide net. And that means content of all lengths I suppose.

The shorter clips help keep an audience with little time to spare, or a shorter attention span, engaged long enough to to reel them in. Makes perfect sense to me. I think Twitter itself was built upon that concept.

Re: Fail fast, fail early, fail often!
I think that Twitter is ripe for a takeover and if they streamed more content it would be huge for them. For instance, if they streamed all NFL games versus the select few that they have right to now I know that my 55-year-old dad would suddenly be interested in having a Twitter account.

Re: Fail fast, fail early, fail often!
..and let me take that one step further:   Twitter & facebook have a reason to be becausee people choose to come--when they stop, ti is a problem--I look at it like the trendy nightclubs....Twitter will survive--and at the Daily Outsider we use it extenislvey for our on-going public policy & social justice advoacy issues...and yes it is kind of cheap!! :) :)

Re: Fail fast, fail early, fail often!
Well these old school content providers need to do something. Yeah, maybe Twitter isn't the answer. But I bet it could be acquired for a pretty good price right now. It's like a content provider without the proper advertising strategy.

They're trying to stay relevant--but they're fast becoming the Yahoo of Social Media and there lies the challenges for them.
