Twitter CEO Dick Costolo: Whisper Mode for Public Conversations

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo: Whisper Mode for Public Conversations | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Twitter is looking to encourage more private discussions on its service. CEO Dick Costolo would like to have a "whisper mode" that allows users to take pub


There are frequently public conversations that you would like to grab hold of and take into whisper mode with a friend and say, hey, this thing has happened. Look what these people are talking about. What do you think about this, with a friend or more than one friend. So being able to move fluidly between that public conversation and the private conversation is something we’ll make simpler.

This sounds like having a Facebook private chat. Might be very popular. Direct message was designed for this, but that became like spam, let's hope this doesn't as well.

James Jandebeur's curator insight, March 16, 2014 9:59 AM

According to Facebook's news page, the service has 1.23 billion active users, a little over 20% of the population of the world. Twitter has around 200 million. These services, or something like them, have become increasingly important in our lives, influencing the news media and a variety of public decision making processes. Between a need for security and utility, we need to start learning, then teaching, then learning some more, how to best use social media, and classrooms are not the only place where this needs to be done.
