…and Twitter is for what?

I can understand how a non-profit campgaign or say, an election campaign or some such big multi-stakeholder project would need something similar to alert its followers, but Twitter for orinary folk like you and me appears to be a tedious exercise in mind numbing narcissism.

I am open to changing my mind – if someone can convince me.

  1. Gosh – it is indeed amazing how Twitter has captured public consciousness.

    I think two factors come into play here:

    1. The natural human need for expression
    2. The absolute need for brevity in this mad time constrained rushing world of ours.

    Unfortunately I suspect avid followers in Twitter probably end up wasting more time than getting productive output from it. But then again, the same can be said of any form of communication!
