On With Twitter

An interesting take on "Twitter" from the NY Times here:


I imagine I agree with much said in the piece, though I still wonder if Twitter as we know it today won't have evolved into something totally different and barely recognizable within 5 years' time. If Twitter doesn't 'crash-and-burn' in the next couple years, then it is likely in the infancy of a long-life.
"Social media" are one of the endlessly-interesting aspects of the ever-changing Internet, and observing the sort of 'cultural' evolution they signify, occurring right before our eyes in real-time, is fascinating. Like many others I only reluctantly joined "Twitter," and then too fell under its spell, though still uncertain where, pray tell, it is headed.
