I love Twitter. Of course I didn’t always, I have both loved and hated it with equal measure. It can be an incredible waste of time but if you are careful about who you follow there is just the right mix of socializing and signal v noise that I am kept involved.
The funny thing is the service today has been taken over by talk of the “Tweeterboard” which ranks users based on their conversations by counting how many times their name is referenced. Will this turn it into a popularity contest?
It seems if today is any indication, a lot of people are trying to game their rankings. I do hope this is a one day aberration.
What do you think? Do you Twitter? Will this spoil it for you?
