I have just completed a survey from Google AdSense here http://bit.ly/eor3Jv . The purpose of the survey was for Google AdSense to learn more about how their users are creating and sharing content online. For example, sending a social update to our friends on Facebook or blogging about a hobby on Blogger. This would qualify as online content creation and sharing.

After completing this survey it got me thinking about what I would like out of creating content, sharing and consuming content on the web. Well we all know that Twitter is currently one of the best ways of creating and consuming the most up to date content on the web.

I personally use twitter throughout most of the day and I feel that if there were a site that had all the Twitter features and I were able to attach a video / photo and they automaticly resize and display as a thumbnail next to my tweet / text I would consider this a complete way of sharing, communicating and consuming up to date content under one roof.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy using facebook, blogging and the web in general as there is no doubt in my mind that these are also great ways to share, create and consume content, especially in niche markets and industries, but in my mind these are nowhere near as up to date as Twitter or indeed any micro blogging platform.

What are your thoughts on this? If there were a micro blogging platform where we could also upload or use an external url to attach video or photo's to your tweets or text would you give it a try?
