Social media-savvy Umair Haque suggests in a Harvard Business post that The New York Times ought to buy Twitter. Normally this would go unnoticed, except that Haque has been connected to some of the most interesting advice in media in recent years.
1. A new distribution system.
2. A mechanism to provide context.
3. A form of building meaningful relationships with users.
4. A sheer experiment, in itself a noble idea.
Haque acknowledges pretty much that the idea is his alone in floating and that there aren't likely takers in large numbers. But he puts it out there.
