Is Twitter’s First Conference Coming April 14th? Twitter’s #1 User Says So

If you’re hoping to go to Twitter’s first-ever developers conference, Chirp, you might like to know when it’s scheduled for, right? Twitter hasn’t publicly announced the date, but we wanted to know so that we didn’t schedule our next public event on the same date. So I just asked on Quora, the new Q&A service just launched by Facebook’s first CTO, Adam D’Angelo.

Within a few hours I got an answer, from Ashton Kutcher, the most-followed person in the world on Twitter. Ashton says the event is going to happen on April 14. So our event will not be on April 14.

It’s possible that the Twitter event is not actually going to be held on April 14, but I strongly suspect that is in fact the plan. As Twitter’s number one guy, as the founder of a high-profile social media marketing company hanging out on a reputation-based site, as someone whose answer got a thumbs up from Quora engineer Kevin Der (who has a strong interest in the site being filled with accurate info) – it seems highly likely that Kutcher knows and is telling the truth.

Quora is a very compelling site, disproportionately filled with Silicon Valley engineering and investing elites talking comfortably among themselves for now. That’s unlikely to last (especially if people start blogging about what gets talked about there!) but the site’s user experience and design are more than good enough to hold their own long after the cool kids aren’t alone there anymore.

Quora is subject of another article, still forthcoming. (Here’s screenshots if you don’t have an invite.)

For now, just make a note: Twitter’s first public event is probably going to be held on April 14. That’s what Ashton Kutcher says, anyway.
