Where is the Twitter Killer?

If you didn’t already know, the big news in the world of social media this week has been the rumor about Google’s Facebook killer, which is said to be called “Google Me.” The news was originally reported by Digg’s Kevin Rose, before being confirmed by ex-Facebook CTO Adam D’Angelo.

According to Steve Spillman over at thebigmoney.com, D’Angelo brought up an interesting point recently, when he said: “Google realized that Buzz wasn’t enough and that they need to build out a full, first-class social network. They are modeling it off of Facebook.”

Once described as a “Twitter Killer,” Google Buzz appears to have joined the heap of Google social products that have never quite caught on. Since then, we haven’t really heard the phase “Twitter Killer,” which makes us wonder, why hasn’t anybody challenged Twitter’s dominance?

And the answer to that question is because anybody who has tried has failed. Twitter was the first popular microblogging site, and it appeals to all demographics at once. Even if a better service came along and challenged Twitter, it would have a long way to win over Twitters’ users.
