BuzzFeed FWD looked into the change of what's going on at Twitter right now and saw a glimpse of its future: it wants to be a Facebook.
The Director of Twitter's Design Team told BuzzFeed FWD that "none of Twitter's current apps quite match the vision for where they're going with Twitter." Translation: all their smartphone apps, tablet aps, and desktop apps and their recently revamped web page don't show where Twitter wants to go. Twitter is already discouraging developers from re-creating the same Twitter experience in apps, and encouraging them to build apps into Twitter.
If successful, they could very well get out of the whole 140 character business, turning things into a more complex ecosystem. [BuzzFeed FWD]
