Now that Google+ is really moving along, they could incorporate the feature that achieves what I wished for a few months ago: a full, user-owned replica of the Twitter social graph.

I want to be able to create a Google+ "Circle" called Twitter, and have it contain references to all of my Twitter connections. Furthermore, Google+ should let me authenticate that I am who I say I am on Twitter, and use that information to validate the legitimacy of the Twitter Circle graph.

Once Google+ has a reasonably large, faithful subset of the Twitter social graph, it will serve the purpose of a useful competitor. Until then, it's just a backup plan that lets me write long comments like this.

You know what's great about Google+? No ads.

Don't get used to it.

Follow the money trail. It doesn't start with us users so expecting Google or Facebook to be loyal to us is perhaps unreasonable.

Hmm, so far it's like Facebook but with all nerds. I think I could get into this.

Facebook really wants to be Apple. The videos try so hard look & feel like Apple product videos but fail hard.

This wasn't clever enough for Twitter.

A nice innovation of Google+ is I can get the satisfaction of seeing that somebody I respect has "added me to their circles", and the circle I'm in might be called "Ignore This Fuck".

We all win.
