Twitter is scheduling a major upgrade of its website. Because of its minimalist approach (140 characters and nothing more), Twitter has been a text medium.
It all changes soon. Soon you will be able to see all those videos and photos that people are tweeting about without clicking through the shortened URLs.
This video does a cute job of explaining it.
Mashable does a nice job also.
I’m thinking it’s headed more toward something like paper.li. I like the way it displays photos and videos that get mentioned in my network.
This is where it’s going. The next big thing is sites that take our social media feeds, prioritize the items and display them nicely. Twitter and Facebook need to take the next step to offer an option that does this instead of displaying content in a first-in-first-out stream.
