Great point.  I've seen this in action -- e.g. a close friend of mine is in a private Facebook group of social media "professionals" who (going by what this friend has shown me) behave as if they were back in high school.

If Twitter's can make money on other people's content (their tweets and videos and expanded cat pictures) then at some point the people who create the content are going to take that business model back.  In any case, it's a limited opportunity for Twitter. Serving ads based on who or what I follow is less powerful than serving ads based on search.  I don't "need" to see what's going on with #NASCAR as much as I "need" a vacuum cleaner when I search for it on Google.

Twitter had a much better, more lucrative, opportunity -- as an open, but metered, service that other services and applications and businesses pay for.  Now they're just a website and an iPhone app, they've shot themselves in the foot with third party developers.

They also developed a cool graph that let's you see when you signed up for Twitter on a graph of the total number of Twitter users over time: http://wewillraakyou.com/twitter-users/

I like SeeSaw, especially when you try it with something like "puppy": http://sees.aw/index_wook?h=%23puppy

 @MarissaMcN  I wonder whether people count playing Zynga games as being "on Facebook" even though something like Words With Friends exists as a standalone app on mobile.

 @dough I disagree. At Modern Media not only does our Klout score determine whether we get hired (nobody can be higher than @tonia_ries ), it also determines our hourly wage.  I'm up to like 43 cents an hour.

@PaulDoyle I agree. It would be relatively easy to do as long as you are interested in displaying one "latest" tweet from one user. I'm fleeing the country for the holidays, but will see what I can do when I get back. In the meantime someone else might have developed what you want. Have you searched the plugins repository?

@PaulDoyleThat's a different thing. Our plugin is for embedding individual tweets as "quotes" in posts, not the latest tweet from a user. You can probably use Twitter's own widget -- https://twitter.com/about/resources/widgets -- in a WordPress text widget in your sidebar. Just paste in the code that Twitter gives you. Hope that helps -- Chris

@DialectMag Did you activate the plugin? If so, and you see it in the Plugins admin panel, then you may have to enable Twitter's javascript under Settingg > Embedded tweets. Let me know. Cheers, Chris

Hey @marissamcn -- "93% of the population" seems like a heck of a lot. I checked the source. It's "90 percent of the European internet audience." This is a bit of a different number.

At this point Klout is a game for social media types, not a serious representation of anything at all. Any marketer that is relying on Klout to make decisions is probably doing so because the "score" is a number between 10 and 100 -- they can count up to it easily without getting a math headache.
