Today’s Twitter Propaganda

Proudly brought to you by the letter B, I suppose…

In my opinion, the most commonly heard complaints about Twitter stem from a misunderstanding of it. Chief among these complaints is the utterly bunk assertion that it’s just a whole bunch of people heralding the trivial events of their daily lives into the void. (i.e., “I’m going to the bathroom now!” or “Eating a yummy ham sandwich!”) Frankly, if that’s how you’re using Twitter, you’re doing it wrong, and you should stop without subjecting your friends to a full week of that rubbish, let alone a full month.

Explaining Twitter to people can be always interesting, and as of late I’ve found that for most people “What you don’t understand, you ridicule.” I’ve had some interesting conversations around Twitter and how one would use it and why. I like this video, as it explains it without jargon or going in to technical details. (This would be one of the best I’ve seen).
