How Twitter Will Change the Way We Live - TIME - 0 views

    Evan Williams and Biz Stone of Twitter Robyn Twomey for TIME ENLARGE + Print Reprints Email Twitter Linkedin Buzz up! (44) Facebook MORE... Add to my: Technorati reddit Google Bookmarks Mixx StumbleUpon Blog this on: TypePad LiveJournal Blogger MySpace The one thing you can say for certain about Twitter is that it makes a terrible first impression. You hear about this new service that lets you send 140-character updates to your "followers," and you think, Why does the world need this, exactly? It's not as if we were all sitting around four years ago scratching our heads and saying, "If only there were a technology that would allow me to send a message to my 50 friends, alerting them in real time about my choice of breakfast cereal."

I had met Evan Williams, Twitter's co-creator, a couple of times in the dotcom '90s when he was launching Back then, what people worried about was the threat that blogging posed to our attention span, with telegraphic, two-paragraph blog posts replacing long-format articles and books. With Twitter, Williams w
    "Injecting Twitter into that conversation fundamentally changed the rules of engagement. It added a second layer of discussion and brought a wider audience into what would have been a private exchange. And it gave the event an afterlife on the Web. Yes, it was built entirely out of 140-character messages, but the sum total of those tweets added up to something truly substantive, like a suspension bridge made of pebbles."

Why Twitter Turned Down Facebook ( - 0 views

    For now, a marriage between Twitter and Facebook is not meant to be - but the courtship between the two Web 2.0 companies could be rekindled in the future. That was one message from Evan Williams, the chief executive and co-founder of Twitter, in a talk at the Churchill Club in San Francisco Tuesday night.

Social Network Sites: Definition, History, and Scholarship - 0 views

    Abstract: Social network sites (SNSs) are increasingly attracting the attention of academic and industry researchers intrigued by their affordances and reach. This special theme section of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication brings together scholarship on these emergent phenomena. In this introductory article, we describe features of SNSs and propose a comprehensive definition. We then present one perspective on the history of such sites, discussing key changes and developments. After briefly summarizing existing scholarship concerning SNSs, we discuss the articles in this special section and conclude with considerations for future research.

Jeff Johnson Reminders That Think Like You Do - 0 views

    Typically, when you schedule something - at least something happening in the immediate future - you don't spell out the date and time, but rather say something along the lines of "let's have lunch on Friday at noon." And that's where looks to differentiate itself in the crowded market for reminder services. The service takes a Twitter-like approach to getting reminder data from you, with a 140-character limited form that wants you to input the answer to "remind me about …" Input things like "Mashable event Thursday at 6pm," "flight tomorrow at 8am," or "basketball next Monday at 7pm," and figures out the date and adds it to your reminder lists.

Tirer le meilleur parti de Twitter - 0 views

    Une très belle entrée en matière. "Ce guide s'adresse à tout ceux qui s'intéressent au phénomène Twitter sans pour autant avoir les clés nécessaires à sa compréhension. Il se présente donc comme un guide en 4 parties à l'attention des particuliers mais aussi des entreprises. La première est une présentation générale du service, de ses usages et de ce qu'il a changé dans les méthodes de consommation de l'information pour ses membres. La deuxième partie s'attarde sur la galaxie de services dérivés qu'il a engendré. La troisième s'intéresse aux usages pour les entreprises. Enfin, la quatrième et dernière partie s'interroge sur le futur possible de l'outil de micro-blogging et sur ses utilisations insolites" (Le Blog du Modérateur). Bravo à Flavien Chantrel, Antoine Dupin SEOMAN, Fadhila Brahimi, François Mathieu, Yann Leroux, Benjamin Romei, Eric Dupin, Christophe Logiste, Emilie Ogez, Pierre Jollet, Kim Auclair, Emmanuel Gadenne, Hubert Vaudaux et Lilian Mahoukou.

Logic+Emotion: The Human Feed: How Twitter & Networks Filter Signal From Noise - 0 views

  • one of the functions that networks such as Twitter does is to serve as something of a human powered feed, a real time living stream of links, content and conversation often times generated by our friends, peers or the people we look to as "filters"—indivisuals who we trust to seperate the wheat from chaff.
  • the internet is still about information—but it's also about attention
  • We have a deficit in attention.

  • We all suffer from technology induced attention deficit disorder,
  • Bookmarks don't help—now we need tools like  And of course we need Google more than ever. And there's once more thing we need. We need each other to make sense of it all. We need a Web with a human touch to help guide us through the fragmented, landscape of the internet. And that's where the human feed comes in.
  • power in the human feed
  • Often times the quality of links and information I get on Twitter is better than what I would have gotten from Google because the knowledge of the human feed is deep, niche, and fickle.
  • It's not always about size—it's also about quality
