The Case for Twitter

NEW YORK "In its short life, Twitter has been a hothouse of end-user innovation". Läs Times lååååånga (drygt 21 000 tecken) artikel om hur 140 tecken långa meddelanden förändrar världen. Inledningen:

You hear about this new service that lets you send 140-character updates to your "followers," and you think, Why does the world need this, exactly? It's not as if we were all sitting around four years ago scratching our heads and saying, "If only there were a technology that would allow me to send a message to my 50 friends, alerting them in real time about my choice of breakfast cereal."
