    Dan on A New Focus on Social Business Strategy. It occurred to me that perhaps Twitter should be doing the reverse and allowing its users to embed content into tweets. The reason I believe this is important is that Twitter is a place of links away from its site, people use desktop clients to access it, they use mobile apps, most of which aren’t owned or managed by Twitter. Therefore, infact over time does Twitter become a non-entity, simple a technology that is used to communicate rather than a destination for conversation and content. It seems a smart move to me.
