I’m sort of a weird bird in that I’m often a power user of Twitter and love tools like Seesmic Desktop and Tweetdeck but will then shut down and take a social media vacation for weeks at a time. For those of you that have struggled to explain to your Facebook friends, relatives and other technology luddites just what the heck Twitter is the world became a better place for you today with the announcement of Seesmic Look.
Seesmic takes the idea of Twitter and does a few great things.
It proves out the value of Twitter’s business model and how power an API services business can be.
It provides a clear monetization strategy for social media with it’s channels implementation.
It provides an ambient and highly entertaining introduction into the Twittersphere that people can enjoy without even having a Twitter account.
It showcases how apps can create beautiful and emotional experiences that can support, augment and transcend what’s possible with the Standards-based Web alone.
