Yoav’s post about twitter was interesting:
Personally, I don’t really see the appeal. So far there are only two uses I have for it:
Lance Armstrong writes a fair bit, and even posts some pictures, and since I am a huge cycling fan, that’s kind of fun to read.
I use the search API to keep track of people talking about my stuff… Hecl, LangPop.com, and so on. That’s kind of handy, but it feels more like a big wiretap than a “conversation”.
Other than that, it’s another firehose of data that I really don’t need – I probably read too much junk on the internet as it is.
