Twitter failings

Doc Searls

The first time I went to Twitter this morning, I got this: Before that, the computer had been asleep all night. When I’ve seen this before, I thought perhaps Twitter in my browser had been hitting the API too hard for updates or something. Neither my computer nor I had been doing anything with Twitter — as far as I know. Its settings say nothing about Twitter. Could it be the Twitter app? problems Technology twitter

Let’s move tweeting off Twitter

Doc Searls

Tweeting is owned by Twitter. In all fairness, this probably wasn’t the plan when Twitter’s founders started the service. Twitter has become de facto infrastructure, and that’s bad, because Twitter is failing. Tweeting without Twitter.

On my 3rd Twitter birthday: 7 reasons Twitter is central to my life

Ross Dawson

Earlier today I noticed it’s three years since my life on Twitter began. It now seems strange to me that I was such a late starter compared to many other connected folk, given that Twitter is now so central to my life. The primary reason I held off getting started on Twitter was that I felt that my blog was my primary space for content sharing, and I didn’t want to divide my limited spare attention across platforms. I now know that blogs and Twitter are highly complementary.

A strange Twitter double-fail

Doc Searls

Twitter has frozen me out, so I can’t check shit, but I’ll bet I haven’t tweeted more than maybe four times today. I kinda doubt this is an April Fools thing, since faking a fail isn’t Twitter’s style. It looks like Twitter is taking lessons from AT&T.

Detailed stats: Social networks dominate Internet usage, Australia still #1

Interestingly Tumblr’s dramatic rise (+183% over the last year) has taken it to overtake Twitter in time spent online. However Nielsen’s methodologies look only at website visits and don’t the majority of time spent on Twitter, which is on web and mobile clients.

Google+ and the Unsettled World of Social Media

Andy McAfee

A lot of us don’t love that Twitter is limited to very short messages and Facebook connections are symmetric (if you’re my Fbook friend, I’m automatically yours), so G+ tackles these limitations.

Losing interest in social media: there is no there there

George Siemens

After recreating my online social network ( largely based on blogs from early 2000) in Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Quora, G+ was a chore. I spent a few weeks of responding to G+ friend requests, trying to engage with a few people, posting a few random links, all the while trying to upkeep (occasionally) Twitter and (almost never) Facebook. What has Twitter and Facebook done for me? Put another way, Twitter/Facebook/G+ are secondary media.

Telling the story of how the Osama news came out on Twitter first

Ross Dawson

Interestingly, in many news outlets the fact that the news leaked on Twitter before President Obama’s announcement to the nation almost rivals the news itself. Just in following my own Twitter stream I knew the news (or at least the rumor) well before it appeared in the mainstream media. ABC News has compiled a stream of the Twitter messages and mainstream media responses as they came out, as below. Of course, what you hear on Twitter is not necessarily true.
