What a hoot!!!
If ever a communication medium proved that less is more, it’s Twitter, the social-networking service that lets its 100 million registered users send “tweets,” messages of no more than 140 characters, and read those of other users.
Four years after the service’s debut, tweets are flying around the globe at a rate of about 750 per second. Twitter has morphed into something its inventors didn’t intend: a broadcast news service. A Harvard Business School study revealed that the median lifetime number of tweets per subscriber is one. Most Twitter users aren’t using the service to keep in touch with friends; they’re awaiting the next tweet from Ashton Kutcher.
