Will Twitter survive mainstream adoption?

Scale can be the undoing of certain things. Imagine an intimate get
together with 1,000,000 “friends” attending.
Will Twitter survive mainstream adoption?
“Twittering” will survive but Twitter is at risk. The inherent
structure of Twitter does not work when and if it becomes very widely
Social networking sites lose their value as entropy rises – and the
entropy will explode when it is broadly adopted by the populace.
However the idea of character limited short communications in a social
network context was brilliant even if it seems obvious after the fact,
and we should take our hats off to Twitter.
People will keep migrating forward to the next platform – we have not
seen the Google of social networking sites yet.
Have we?
