I still think the time is ripe for a “Twitter Killer” startup that also served the center-Left community. I say this because a lot of content providers, celebrities and thought leaders are unhappy with Twitter’s abuse problem and difficulty of use. At the same time, those people are also opposed to the Trump Administration. So, it makes a lot of sense for a new service to accommodate the two groups from the ground up.
Two things have been lost since the 1990s — “chat rooms” and “discussion boards.” So, why not design a service from the ground up that updated and combined those two services in an intuitive manner while also leaning heavily on video chat.
It makes a lot of sense, in my opinion. Of course, this is the point where you ask if I think it’s such a great idea, why don’t I do it myself? Well, I don’t see that as my purpose. My purpose would be to help organize it and promote it.
But, who are we kidding, it’s not like this is actually going to happen. The only way I could see it maybe happening is if Trump fires Bob Mueller and there’s a groundswell of people who want to protest on a regular basis.
