Michael Pinto at fanboy.com is totally right about Twitter’s Achilles heel. From Social Media “Experts” are the Cancer of Twitter (and Must Be Stopped):
Now the first symptom of this disease was what I call “social media deafness”, a state that occurs when a person’s social graph exceeds 500+ virtual friends. The result is that the person is a mile wide, but an inch deep. Suddenly the friend you use to know develops amnesia like symptoms and starts ignoring your direct messages — what was first simple Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder becomes full blown zombie like state.
So true. And I love his proposed resolution to the problem.
