Twitter vs The World

I'm just saying that, if you're a pure web business (like say Edicy) and you're based in NYC/SoCal/London most of your customers are people who if you met...

  • Don't speak English, so they won't understand anything you say.
  • Will never have heard of twitter, dopplr or techcrunch
  • Have probably have heard of Britany Spears

So in summary, internationalising to Uzbek is a better investment that Twitter integration, and Michael Arlington is sort of missing the point. Startups need revenue, that comes from people. How long you take for lunch isn't really that important.
