I think we've pretty much exhausted the holes and dirt metaphor, and I'd like to propose a different one. A business is defined by the answer(s) to the question, "Who is going to sell what to whom?" So, what are the needs of the Twitter "customer base?" Raffi has posted some things he'd like to see, and I read the blogs regularly and have some clues as to what people like @scobleizer, @mashable, etc. think Twitter should become. And it all boils down to what real problems people have, what costs them money and time, what they don't know that could hurt them, and so on. Once we know what the problems are, how can the *Twitter* ecosystem solve them? @znmeb
