Twitter Is A Publication

08/03/2007 —

Scott Karp heeft een aardige theorie over wat ‘Twitteren’ is en geeft dit weer op zijn weblog ‘Publishing 2.0’.

Here’s a definition of “publishing” that fits Twitter:
the communication of something to the public; making information generally known
What Twitter essentially does is reduce the barriers and friction to “making information generally known” — even more than blogging software.
The result is a form of publishing and an emergent “personalized” publication that “mashes up” MANY different forms of information in a way that has never been done before.
Twitter is the ultimate participatory medium — the entire publication is just us. We get out what we put in.
