Is Twitter for Old People?

Twitter Geeks Get Anxious Where the conventional wisdom once held that the young are our early adopters, oldsters are beginning to help drive the pace of technology-based change.

Sincerely Yours

Tag CloudThe pomp and formality that once punctuated intelligent discourse has been replaced in the Internet age by a more informal stream of communications that is broader and more frequent.

With all the excitement bubbling around Twitter and its myriad of uses, I thought I would share a few observations about the tool, its strengths, and challenges it poses for online communicators.

Perhaps you heard about the job applicant who, after receiving an offer from Cisco Systems, sent a twitter message (tweet)

Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.

With an appropriate level of shock, others have commented on the apparent lack of couth exhibited by this supposedly tech-savvy individual. Why would any rational person do such a thing?
