Could we make Flickr into Twitter?

A thought just popped into my head when
friended me on Flickr.
I wondered what if we used
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
in the last few days, but it bears repeating. The thing that makes Flickr so interesting is its broad and stable API.
