Filak and Briggs talk about using twitter as a way of microblogging.
Twitter is a great tool, but has just as much downside as it does upside. Twitter isn’t always filled with the most accurate information to say the least. Often times, people read a tweet and take it as fact, instead of researching the thing they are reading about.
I’m a huge fan of the way Twitter limits its users to 280 characters, formerly 140. It keeps users concise and makes them get to the point quicker. Other medias like Instagram and Facebook always seem to have long, never ending rants, that Twitter has been able to avoid for the most part (threads).
It’s very nice to have all different types of news, sports and entertainment in one place, but you can’t believe everything you read, especially on Twitter.
