They're precisely right: Individually, most Twitter messages are stupefyingly trivial. But the true value of Twitter — and the similarly mundane Dodgeball, a tool for reporting your real-time location to friends — is cumulative.

When I see that my friend Misha is "waiting at Genius Bar to send my MacBook to the shop," that's not much information. But when I get such granular updates every day for a month, I know a lot more about her. And when my four closest friends and worldmates send me dozens of updates a week for five months, I begin to develop an almost telepathic awareness of the people most important to me.

It's like proprioception, your body's ability to know where your limbs are. That subliminal sense of orientation is crucial for coordination: It keeps you from accidentally bumping into objects, and it makes possible amazing feats of balance and dexterity.

For example, when I meet Misha for lunch after not having seen her for a month, I already know the wireframe outline of her life: She was nervous about last week's big presentation, got stuck in a rare spring snowstorm, and became addicted to salt bagels.

Bucking The System

Last weekend CNN lead with a big story about James Buck, a
graduate student in journalism from the University of
California-Berkeley who was arrested last month in Mahalla, Egypt
while covering an anti-government protest. Thinking quickly, James
was able to send a one-word Twitter update: "Arrested." His
followers in Egypt and back in the US reacted by contacting the
university and the consulate on his behalf. Before long, James was
updating Twitter with another one-word message, "Free."

i don't twitter, don't social network aside from my blogs and handful of forums.

Shauk but doesn't that also come from just interacting with the individual as they share one on one with you during conversations? Or is it just "same old, same old" a response? I IM with a friend in Iceland and I know about him because we converse via IM. It's not just a static message he leaves me. Over the years we've developed a nice relationship that overshadows my wife and his spouse's relationship which is the original way we met. They only interface from time to time, in fact I know more about what is going on from the cumulative interactions I have.

that may work for people who are at their computers a lot, at least, enough to IM, but say for example, I get off work, away from the computer, I go to walk out to some place i'm gigging for the night, exciting things happen, or, changes of plans occur, impromptu parties, etc. Things I can't be bothered to call 100 or so people to update with. Anyone who is "following" me on my twitter is also given the option to receive my updates and reply to them via text messaging on their cell phone. (it's actually pretty easy) (double nice is the fact that youc an set "hours" for it to not send you updates (ahh my phone is buzzing at 4am cuz shauk isn't asleep yet! damn you twitter! well, yeah you can just turn that off)

I dunno, i was off the computer for easily a chunk of time exceeding 8 hours, but the twittering was still going strong both too and from me, and I can't say that happens with myspace/LJ/other online thingies.

I think it's pretty nice, the thing about being social on IM/AIM whatever is it usually involves 2 people being completely "stationary" and not out and about "living" their life. seems like with this, you could be up on top of the mountain, conquering a wicked trail, and twitter about it, while your friends are at a convention, or eating at a new restaurant and basically you're simultaneously having a great time, or inspiring the people who AREN'T to get off their ass and start working on that.


personally, I've found this twitter thing to be kind of a kick in the pants, if I don't have something interesting to write, i'm doing it wrong. It's making me wanna do stuff that I wouldn't normally have been motivated to try doing.

As I said, if my life isn't interesting enough for me to write about to some extent, then it spurs me to change this.

I don't doubt that, what I was referring to is that it isn't much different than people keeping in contact. Keeping up with the mundane, via blog, twittr, or conversation is boring period.

Doing something because you're "impressing" someone or your twittr? is that who you really are? or is it no different than a different version of being an attention whore?

I don't discredit what you are saying or doing. I do try to do interesting things that are interesting to me, but not what I wouldn't have normally been motivated to do in the first place. So if it does get you to do something different because you want to start doing something different, that's great. If you're doing something different because you want to see a difference in your twittr activity... well that's a different animal.

it's less about impressing the masses than it is reading your own writing and going "how droll"

The only person I want to impress is myself, but isn't that everybody to an extent?

Twitter is mostly inane, but it doesn't have to be. When interesting things are happening but don't necessarily fit in with traditional methods of reportage, twitter can be kinda interesting.

I find twitter is interesting now I've got the hang of it - I read a number of people's blogs via it, and use it in the same way as Facebook status line (in fact I use it to update facebook).

Anyone else?

Yep, I'm on it... I don't post exciting things, though. Mostly I just like to follow not-very-but-kind-of famous people, plus NASA and the Reds.


Although, I was thinking about this the other night... I headed down to Newport, which is 45ish minutes away, for a music show that I didn't know I was going to, and therefore, didn't tell anyone about. It occured to me that if I disappeared, my followers on twitter would at least have clues to where I'd been. (of course, after thinking this, I immediately texted a friend to tell her where I was.)


oh, http://twitter.com/Cinnakins. That's me. I suppose you can always un-follow me if you think I'm too boring

I'm cmykevin. I use it to replace all other forms of "social networking" as I only used them to actually try and keep up with old friends, not find new music. Sometimes it's just easier to announce that I'll be going to a restaraunt/bar/event/area, and see who's in the area then calling everyone in my contacts. My work uses it to announce new gallery openings/shows, new products or surprise sales (They're gallerynucleus).
