Comment All Hyped Up and No Where To Go (Score 2) 105

I never really understood twitter, how can you make money off a 160 character message? there are billions of tweets, people arent glued to each tweet and miss a lot thats out there and usually just focus on the big trends .. unless they link products from tweets and get comissions on sales ... people arent really going to advertise.
again .. nice idea .. but where to go from here?

Facebook i understand, it allows people to share in your life, Instagram makes people jeleous of your life, or you want to share part of someones experience .. but twitter is just more like an announcement.... move on.

Just a thought ( i have no experience in this)
Spacial Compression, as each bit has a quantifying value of 1 or 0 and each pixels has a certain colour code convertible to a hex code, couldn't one convert a file with a list/db of hex codes being used and using spacial geometry to fill in the blank .. or am i just wrong .. i have no idea what i'm going on about... babble babble...
for example Minecraft uses content generation to create worlds, couldn't something along those lines be used to generate responses to certain requests...
