Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Twitter is the Modern TV

« Integrating a Blog in your Content Strategy | Main | The PR Hype Cycle »


The other reason why I compared Twitter to television is that when I read the study, it made me think of the way one would measure TV viewers. Including information about industry, and geography would have been more helpful, given how fragmented this new reality of communications is. Hence my own what I'd like to see at the end.

Valeria--thanks so much for writing this and for covering our study--I think you've hit on some very important topics here. I, too, hold out hope for the PARC/MIT client and other efforts to "humanize" Twitter. There are far too many tools on Twitter that merely help you to use Twitter better. The next step for the platform has to be the creation of tools that help people live their *lives* better.

Thanks again!
