Five reasons Twitter will win in the long-term:

  1. Focus matters, Twitter is committed to be a place of interests, not friends e.g. Facebook
  2. Twitter is the home app for discovering bite size news and updates from brands and personalities, being a first page home app is huge!
  3. Love it or hate it, Twitter handles and references are used everywhere. Brands and celebrities constantly use it because it’s easy and yes it’s powerful.
  4. World stage is Twitter dominance. Politicians will use it more and more because of it’s a free and open channel to reach its audience. The old ways of using the media is slowly going away.
  5. Twitter will make big money in a big way. The more people rely on it as a staple despite its current shortcomings, but it will eventually cash in. Think Amazon back in the days when investors grew impatient with its no profits quarters, then suddenly they start to cash in from their growth.
