We shouldn’t “fill holes” anymore, Wilson said. The thing is Twitter
has deliberately kept a lot of holes opened, encouraging us to fill
them (and lots of applications have been doing it with innovation, by
the way).

Now we’re supposed to dig, create new holes, and fill them. Okay!
There are a lot of ideas to have around Twitter, lots of new holes to

But the question is still the same: "What will be left up to the
ecosystem and what will be created on the platform?"

I think I'm not the only one here to fear that Twitter itself begins
to compete with the applications I created (or I plan to create). Yes,
it's fun to dig holes and to fill them. But it also takes time and
money, and it's like the game was going to be much more risky than it
used to be.
