Started thinking about two things yesterday:
1. The conversation Ian/Flockhart/Josh were having on Monday about how to decide what the "right" types of user behavior are and how to measure them.
2. On Twitter, Flockhart and Ian coexist with me and Josh — even though we both produce and consume totally differently.
This leads me to think that Twitter didn't decide that Josh's and my behavior was the "right" way to use Twitter and architect their product entirely around it. Instead, they built an interesting tweet/follow mechanism and let users hack it.
>>> TL;DR - Don't arbitrarily decide on a type of user behavior and build a framework around it. Build a compelling framework and let users behave how they want. <<<
Do you agree?
