Twitter's Damaging Effect

It's been noted at this journal before, but it bears repeating again:

Twitter is damaging journalistic tendencies around the world.

I'm beginning to think that Hugh MacLeod got it right when he said he'd quit twitter.  I don't think he kept that promise, though.

Kathy Sierra's Asymptotic Twitter Curve bears reading again.

I still think that that Alan Herrell's quip that twitter's a toy that "disguises motion as activity" has truth to it.

I lament that twitter's so powerful that I couldn't draw more friends into jaiku, instead.

I blog less because of twitter, and I'm not happy about that.

[Edit 2008-08-04] Michael Heilemann notices the effects of microblogging, too.
