Twitter: from your lips to your finger tips…

Twitter, suddenly everyone is talking about it (and here’s why). John Burns writing the Sunday Times Atticus column on the Irish Blogosphere’s Daily Mail moment last week noted that “not the most equable of people at any time, the duped bloggers turned the blogosphere blue with disgust.” All worked up and worked down again in a matter of hours via Twitter… And then there it is in black and white in the ‘dead tree press’… Something’s working… At this stage though it is hard to tell what precisely (See Markham’s very perceptive take on it)… If you are still confused, but interested, why not head over to the Northern Ireland Science Park on Queen’s Island where Twitter’s former Chief Engineer Blaine Cook is sitting in on a panel debate on Wednesday evening… And keep an eye out for sudden changes… H/T Brian Greene (in Twitter that is)…
