Last week, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban caused quite a stir on Twitter by suggesting that people, if they could afford it, get quarterly bloodwork to establish a baseline of their own health. A big failing of medicine, he wrote, is that "we wait till we are sick to have our blood tested and compare the results to 'comparable demographics.' " While that idea may seem logical, medical researchers have long cautioned that more testing is not a recipe for better health. I and others, including many doctors, countered Cuban's views, saying they could produce dangerous outcomes for patients.

Media coverage of Twitter’s last earnings call focused on two key points: the company’s impressive advertising revenue growth and the slow rate of user growth. The latter was worrying for investors, especially against the solid user growth of networks like LinkedIn and Pinterest, and seemed to suggest that social networks that offer a more contextualized or targeted experience have identified a more sustainable model for social networking.
