Don’t Confuse Prologue With Twitter

In this post, Matt Mullenweg has announced a WordPress theme, called Prologue, that provides a Twitter like feed for all registered posters on a blog. Like all blogs it can be password protected, so the stream can be limited to a small group. While a cute idea, I don’t think it really has anything to do with Twitter. In my view, the most important part of Twitter (in my view) is the wide-spread social network it creates. It’s that voyeuristic element that has been key to Twitter’s success. And, if you do want Prologue like capability from Twitter, just protect your updates, and form a small group.

    Every new social application tries to implement some kind of status update. I think Twitter is the ultimate social status application though, and it will be for a while.
