Tweet or twit?
Techie’s house catches fire, so naturally he tweets about it. Twitter world is alight (sorry) with excitement. http://twurl.nl/d20i7k
Initially I was in two minds as to whether there’s any significance in this story; it seemed like a case of “Wow! Something real actually happened!”.
On reflection, I’m going to put my natural scepticism outside with the frost and the remains of Monday’s snow to cool off, while I consider whether Twitter really does have lessons to teach us about how technology can re-engineer society and communities. (Proper WOW!, that.)
