We had a seminar around Twitter last week and three of our phd students are doing a great study of Twitter. As usual I learned a lot and has since discussed Twitter with a lot of people, and I think increased the interest and number of people signing up for it. The study developed and run by Kevin, Richie, and Will is interesting and I am excited to see what their findings will be. It is amazing how we all (again!) are surprised by a new form of communication, and we are (again) realizing that our explanatory models from other forms (such as email or chat) no longer is really useful! Fascinating!!
