Twitter could be the next Mozilla

Facebook should buy it and put it in the sidebar. It would be more useful than the current junk they put there and at least it could live on as a curio. Seriously though, I prefer the open-source solution. Twitter as a news service becomes increasingly annoying and irrelevant as it transitions to an ad-platform. Maybe a consortium of news outlets could buy it or at least support it as an ad-free zone for news consumption. Another avenue to preserve the original experience could be to move to a subscriber model. This would shrink the user base but perhaps save the platform.
