Or even close, for that matter, despite what some know-it-all slef-proclaimed "internet gurus" have been blogging and tweeting and posting to facebook about. There is NO chance of that happening.
This nonsensical notion seems to have been started by one Sean Smith. Let's look at what twitter is:
- - a microblog (or micro-blogging tool)
- - a way to find out what your friends are up to
- - a way to find out what other bloggers and tweeters are up to
- - a way to send stuff directly to your facebook
- - texting, IM style - using DM (direct message), a great alternative to AIM or yahoo instant messenger
Twitter is easy to access from any phone or computer, you barely have to think about it to make it run: any dummy can pick it up instantly.
Not so with Jelly.
The first thing you see at jelly.co is a screen where you have to pick whether you will download it from the App Store or Google Play. End of story right there. If you don't have an Android or iPhone, you are S.O.L. - and even if you do, you know the horrors of programs that mercilessly call for upgrades and downgrades and patches and hoops to jump through. Geeks like Mr. Smith may have a ball spreading jelly, but the average netizen isn't going to bother. I'll take that back a few feet: Jelly could become like Voxer, a service limited between a couple of pals who know how to use it. But no one wants to be on the net and be restricted or isolated. Unless they change Jelly, it's best left in the .jar
