How Tweet It Is

Friday, August 22, 2008


The 'micro-blogging' service Twitter gives you 140 characters to answer the question "What are you doing?" The answers, or tweets, are then broadcast to friends. It's a simple premise but internet consultant and author Clay Shirky argues as the service continues to grow, it's creating a complex and influential new way to communicate.

Finally a great discussion on Twitter. I enjoyed Clay's comments and love his book, Here Comes Everybody.

My Twitter Haiku:

Tedious techies talking to themselves
OTM making the trivial timely,
News as solipsism,
As thousands die in a senseless war.
No wonder journalism is dying.
