NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I want my Twitter account to be as interactive as possible.
Over the last several weeks, the back and forth with fellow Tweeters has increased considerably. As much as I use Twitter to promote my and TheStreet's content, I aim to use it primarily to engage readers. If you can bring sane and logical takes (which, to some, might not appear all that sane and logical), I will publicize them on Twitter and here on TheStreet.

You can't tell me that when she was joining Yahoo! Mayer hadn't heard rumblings of something happening in this whole Facebook/Twitter/Instagram ménage à trois. Maybe she did not know specifics, but her ear scrapes the ground in a big way. She made Flickr a top and immediate priority at Yahoo! for a reason. And now she's snapping a picture using the platform in the middle of the world's greatest city at the flagship store of the world's greatest company ...Continuing that thought . . . taking pictures at an Apple (AAPL) Store during the period when the Facebook (FB)/Instagram integration isn't running so smoothly. In fact, Facebook might actually be setting Instagram up to fail. Dissing Twitter and messing with users on privacy-related issues -- not smart. Facebook can get away with that type of thing, Instagram absolutely cannot. For me, it comes down to one fundamental question: How social can Marissa Mayer make Yahoo!? And, is it even smart to make it too social in the Twitter or Facebook sense? Is it possible? Tough waters to navigate. The "easy" way out, assuming Twitter would have it, is for Mayer to pitch Dick Costolo on the notion of Flickr powering Twitter's photo-filtering thingamajig. Listen, I love Twitter. Probably too much. In fact if I could I would rub Dick Costolo (and Jeff Bezos's) bald heads each morning for good luck. As far as CEOs go, you have cats like Costolo and Bezos followed closely by the new breed Mayer leads. But, Twitter has to rush photo filtering out and, while it will get better, it's not that good.
