I’m rapidly seeing that Twitter isn’t all bad after all. I’ve little taste for it when used primarily as a social net — though I can see the attraction for some, especially people with free time in big cities. (I have no time and live in a tiny town…). But as this story shows, it’s a tremendous resource for tracking breaking news and discussing issues or topics. Like being in a big room with lots of conversations going on around you; you can pick which to track, drift in and out, chime in or even get insistent, or close the tweet window and step out for some quiet.
Plus you get a glittering stream of wit from Stephen Fry.
