The Appeal of Twitter: Yes, Someone Cares About What You Have to Say

The MIT Technology Review has a great 7 minute video that explains Twitter and the appeal of microblogging. In it, they explain the two common arguments against blogging and micro-blogging formats like Twitter:

  • Who do you think you are that anyone cares what you have to say.
  • I don’t have anything to say, and even if I did, no one would care.

I find it interesting how there is more of a psychological element, than a technical element, that keeps people from trying new media.
