I really hope this does not mean Twitter is about to become more like Facebook.

Twitter has begun the roll out of a new feature on their web based interface that will show you the overlap between you and someone you follow. This is practically an exact duplication of Facebook’s Mutual Friends feature.


Then as I am writing this post someone popped up in my Twitter stream and made this comment:

Someone should do a #followfriday like thing on facebook too…..would be fun.

Please lets not do this!  Let Twitter be Twitter and Facebook be Facebook. Why does everything need to be like everything else?

It is OK to be unique!
