Are FB & Twitter Good Enough?

While startups innovate & alleviate the behemoths are not even following on.
Yes it’s true, believe it or not.
Recently FB thought of launching This Day in past 1,2,3,4 years back to review the content & re share also relive the moment.
Hence it is in effect inspired by a startup which does so for all popular social apps.
So now that is a follow on for FB which is so large that in fact it should be starting all the new trends.
That’s very fine, but Twitter also a fast track growth company doesn’t even have any such feature like a time line or so.
Well twitter doesn’t even make browsing previous tweets of an micro blogger forget about creating a revisit section with facility to repost engaging content after a couple of year making re use easier & the job of social blogger more effective & impactful.
All in all it is always the Behemoths which are playing the catch on game while the more nimble startups innovate & raise millions from crowd sourcing or venture funds to end up at the big league in a few years’ time, whereas intuitively it should be the other way round with big firms doing the innovation because of deep pockets & superior talent & tools available with them.
But till we get a cinematic dolby track movie of our past packaged with a style Movie,

It will be a long long time before it happens globally.
