Twitter: @media armistice, please?

with 5 comments

This made me giggle:


And I would like to go on record as calling twitter the Second Life of 2009. Do you remember the last time every single publication had to not only write articles about but be present in some sort of online sphere that a very small percentage of the population were actually using? Second Life. Twitter’s lame hype has reached Second Life proportions. And I like twitter. Which makes me sad that THE MEDIA IS GOING TO KILL IT. ‘Cause all the cool kids are gonna have to move somewhere else now, you know. Or they’ll get too many followers, and find the service diminishing in utility. That’s how it goes.

  1. The media is dying, Liz. How can something that’s dying kill something that’s so on the rise?

    Speaking of cool kids, I’m kinda tired of Facebook. Where’s the next privacy wall club? Sign me up!

  2. Twitter is no longer cool with the hipsters because it went mainstream. Which means the next “big thing” will be passing hand-written notes telling the other what we’re doing right at that second.

  3. I never could get into Twitter. Then again, I can’t really get into Facebook, Myspace, or any other online “networking” phenomenon outside of straight-up blogging. I think I was born about five years too late to really become immersed in all of this. At 27, are we supposed to feel this old???
