Although this innocuos Tweet was presumably a tongue-in-cheek joke by Seth MacFarlane, I think it poses an outstanding question.
Will we Tweet forever?
The answer in my mind is an unquestionable YES. I’m not sure if Twitter per se will be around 50 years from now, but I believe the concept and service that Twitter provides (namely the idea of sending short, real-time messages) has incredible staying power, and will be here forever*.
Much like the concept of Email has evolved from the dial-up AOL days to GMail and Outlook, and just as Email will always be around, I think the concept of “Tweets” will also always be around.
But I’m interested to hear what your thoughts about Seth’s Tweet; do you believe that we’re “all going to Tweet for the rest of our lives?” #giggity
