Google Wave: The Twitter Killer

I just read the article over at TechCrunch about Google’s Wave platform. It looks very impressive, and it seems to be a Twitter killer, and maybe even a Facebook killer (since it brings people together in a more interactive & instant way than Facebook does). However, that doesn’t mean that the idea will catch on, since many good ideas never made good products. But this one might. My real question is, how this will integrate with GTalk and Gmail. Because if it won’t integrate well, it just might not catch on.

Update: How ironic. Twitter is “over capacity” again. These guys remind me of Vimeo: they never managed to optimize their platform.

These remind me of you: You never know when to quit (as in OSNews).

Oh, I wish I knew how to quit you. You haven’t seen the last of me.

“nd it seems to be a Twitter killer, and maybe even a Facebook killer”

Twitter??! Facebook??!

You remind me of my dad some years ago:

“What r u reading there?”
“Dragon Ball Z”
“Is that Superman?”
“How the hell could you confuse them?!”
“C’mon! They are practically the same! They both fly!”

If you can’t see the potential of Wave, and only think of it only in the terms that has been so far described, well, it’s your problem.

It’s way too damn busy. It seems to me there are at least 50 things to click on.

Talk of the Twitter demise has been widespread since word of the G Wave started to circulate… methinks 9 million Twitts won’t go sheep like waving away!
