Tweet of the day 24/10/08
Really a Tweet of the morning, with apologies to this afternoon’s top tweets. This morning my twitter stream was full of tweets on a Twitter vs blogs debate. For me it all started with this one:
The post on Wired by Paul Boutin suggested that:
The blogosphere, once a freshwater oasis of folksy self-expression and clever thought, has been flooded by a tsunami of paid bilge
and that Twitter is now the place to express yourself, blogging being so 2004. The discussion was picked up by BBC journalist Rory Cellan-Jones on dot.life, who was then involved in a discussion on Thursday’s R4 Today programme.
As for the debate itself, I have to agree whole-heartedly with James Clay on the topic:
Where I think there is still room for blogging is the more in-depth articles, technical, reflective, opinion pieces
It’s [twitter] just another tool that allows you to communicate and learn in ways in which it isn’t possible via blogging and e-mail
As my tweets of the day continue I hope this will become clearer to the twitter-sceptics!
