They said it couldn't happen

Two interesting posts from Tony Hirst:
got me thinking. It's been fashionable to say there isn't going to be a Web 2.0 "killer app", but I've just figured out that's wrong. Twitter is the Web 2.0 killer app, because as Tony discusses, everyone uses it in a different way. And that personalization is the essence of Web 2.0.

Why do we keep blogging about Twitter? Because Twitter is important - technically crap as it is, it's the most important thing that's happening in the online world right now, and that means something. Twitter is the zeitgeist of Web 2.0.
