I appreciate the response. But I think you miss that the core value for most people in Twitter is not in talking but in listening and consuming. With snapchat the core value is being able to share personal moments with the people closest to you in a way you can trust (that they go away). So if Twitter even tried to encourage everyone to talk before reading, a ton of readers would disappear.
