    Yes and no. Twitter is replacing instant messaging and chatrooms. It’s an open method by which for people to communicate instantly with others. It’s also about the overheard conversation although that term has dissapeared.

    What does „overheard“ mean? Well simply that whenever two people discuss a topic hundreds of people are following this conversation and when they decide they have an opinion they can cut in. They do have that 140 character limit though, so they need to get to the point is efficiently as possible.

    When that isn’t possible then they can do the next best thing. Write a comment in a blog post or even write a blog entry of their own where the conversation that took place on twitter is synthesised into a more digestible chunk of information.

    As a result twitter is changing people’s habits but the question is why people want to chat publicly rather than in an enclosed space. Today people like transparency.

    warzabidul: people like to participate and interact in (larger) network publics.

  6. I find Twitter adds to my blogging. For one, I learn about some blog material from other people’s Tweets. For another, I think I interact with my audience on Twitter in a second, productive way.

  7. I watched twitter traffic on my laptop screen as the US Presidential election polls came in and thought that in the lecture room or anywhere – pub, cafe, common room, home in the kitchen – it would be interesting to have a twitter screen that just keeps scrolling (in the background) for me to view the global chat – and, yes, join in if that feels right. What would you call what my daughter gets streamed in her ear as she strolls her city centre beat? We’ll be chatting and suddenly she’s talking to the air.

    Bryan Alexander: yes, I would add this educational aspect that you share instantly, without waiting to write a blog entry

    Simon Baddeley: Thank you for sharing and remind us on Foucault’s analogy!

    Twitter feels like television lately. I hate television because it makes me lazy and takes the effort out of tasks that I should put effort in to.

    I’ve been trying to break away from Twitter a little bit so I can push more content on my own blog, and in more than 140 characters. However, because of the ease of use, Twitter has hung on and I use it as a way to keep a portion of my site dynamically updated.
