Could we make Flickr into Twitter?

  • A thought just popped into my head when Peter Rojas friended me on Flickr.
  • I wondered what if we used Flickr's API to implement a message system that worked like Twitter, with a timeline, and of course great picture support. Does the API have enough juice to do it?
  • I think a lot of it would depend on how much of a moving target the API is. If it's not moving, at least for a couple of years, it might just work.
  • I've said it many times in the last few days, but it bears repeating. The thing that makes Flickr so interesting is its broad and stable API.
