Here’s the old description text:
“Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co-workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?And here’s the new text:
“Share and discover what’s happening right now, anywhere in the world”They have moved away from the focus on your personal network and have now started focusing on real time news and discovery for world events. Effectively for me anyway this is almost a step towards a more hybrid social networking/Google news type real-time platform.
This is an evolutionary change. Twitter was first conceived as a place to update your friends and interested parties on your life. It was focused and very much about you. Now in its place the focus is now about the entire world.
