Twitter Events, an event-specific grouping of tweets, is going to be a priority now that Evan Williams has chosen to focus on product strategy, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said on the sidelines of an event Monday night in San Francisco.
"I think we're finally going to have the Events feature," Stone said, in a brief interview. "It's something we've been talking about forever... and now that Ev's back on products, I think that's something that's going to be coming up soon.
"Obviously Twitter electrifies events. You're connected to it, in this matrix," Stone added. "You want to be connected to it, if you're there; but if you're not there, you don't want to hear about it... And in a short time, it's gone."
