Back in June, I wrote a post that gave some examples of tweets we may have seen if Twitter was always around. I thought I’d revisit this topic today.
Twitter, for those of you ancient ones who think a feed reader is a magazine about grain and corn, is a microblogging site where people can tell the world what they’re doing, reply to other people who are saying what they’re doing, and enjoy a global nonstop conversation. It’s been around for a little over two years, and there are politicians, corporations, and celebrities using it alongside us common folk.
But what if Twitter had been around for longer than two years?
MamaCass I’m hungry. Should I have some soup or a ham sandwich?
