    Nice way to tweet about twitter :) I nevertheless think that Twitter deliberately made Twitter this simple. As to say, they dared us to come up with something using less than 140 words in real-time. And yess, people discovered a way to address eachother ( using @), to aggregate topics (#), share links and use it as a tool for revolution. The only thing Twitter did was state “what are you doing?”on top of a tweet, people filled out the purpose of the tool. People give meanings to tweets, not the software/media.

    Thank you Emina for your comment. I agree with you, the people do give meaning to the tweets and by doing so they give meaning to the program. I think the danger for Twitter is to get irrelevant by their own success by getting to big on information overload and bots spamming.
