I can very much agree with the first part of Marshall Kilpatrick’s review of the World’s Most Popular Twitter Clients. “I thought it sounded stupid.” He’s now changed his mind, and has reviewed a range of different twitter clients. I’ve yet to be convinced, as it’s just another thing to have to do. Perhaps part of the reason that it doesn’t appeal is that I see texting as a purely functional thing. I rarely text someone just to say “hi”. Twitter has the same limited character constraints. (And I cn’t txt spk)
I’ve now discovered that Educause have one of their 7 things you should know about Twitter; I’m beginning to think that I should reconsider, and at least start to find out what it does, even if I don’t get converted.
