Twitter Crackdown Would Make Steve Jobs Proud | Wired Business | Wired.com

Excerpt from a snapshot of another game of very high-stakes poker
"So far, Twitter hasn’t done a great job ensuring that consistency in its own products. But Steve Jobs would have approved of the company’s aspirations. Apple’s ascendancy shows that closing off your ecosystem can translate into profits. More people may use Google’s open source Android operating system on their phones than Apple’s iOS. But Apple makes more money.
Since the Facebook IPO sputtered, chatter has increased that Twitter would do well to make itself an attractive acquisition target rather than go public. By ensuring that no one else is out there muddling the definition of the Twitter user experience, Twitter is ensuring that prospective buyers know exactly what they’re getting."
