Below is the general idea of what I want to update for modern social media needs for a Website that would be marketed as a “Twitter killer.” You’d have to update the concept a lot, but the general concept is there. You’d have at least three panes you would be able to interact with.
The key thing is in the pane that you would use to write posts, you would have a fully WYSIWYG editor and the ability to in-line edit. This opens up a lot of really interesting possibilities when it comes to content distribution online. What if you could inline edit in the context of a threaded discussion? That would be a really powerful new feature for newspapers and magazines online. It would definitely change how people interact with content online.
The thing about it is, this is a pretty well developed concept, so it wouldn’t really take that much to update it for the modern Web. Throw in a modern newsfeed, a feature rich profile page and various other things people expect in social media and you have a real chance to bring down Twitter.
But as I keep saying, I have no money, can’t code and don’t want to learn, so this is just a daydream.
