How has the microblogging improved your life?
@firstname.lastname@example.org It didn’t! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA
(I was being serious)
@email@example.com well, something I like from it is the mix between Forums + SMS + Blogs + Comments. I don’t like that much Vanity metrics nor Notifications, but those makes microblogging “more useful”.
And at the same time the mix of all those features is its weakness. It’s easy to oversimplify an idea. But as we like to fight on ideas, well, it’s a side effect en engagement.
Yeah, it has changed the society, the way we express ourselves, and how we socialize around ideas. For me, it makes me shape my communication, being nearby my friends and colleagues, and a few followers in my discipline. Hasn’t work for the academy and research, tho.
