back = content fragmentation that makes comments more valuable
There is a lot of truth in what he says and there is some that I am not sure I agree with but I've been thinking about it for many hours now. On the surface, content and discussion fragmentation is real but I don't think twitter is the main cause. I think the main cause is due to the belief that the same post should be placed in as many places as possible. I get it because people post for a lot of different reasons and sometimes, the post is not so much about getting a conversation going but rather to promote something so the goal of the post is creating awareness rather than actually getting a conversation going.
It's easier to leave a quick twitter reply to an idea and since you only have 140 characters to do it, no one is expecting a reply of 150 characters or more. I have never thought about the value of a comment on a blog post compared to the value of a twitter reply to an idea and I don't even know how you would measure it.
I think Jorge's twitter thought/comment is one of the more interesting ones I've seen simply because I can't really get it out of my head. Thanks Jorge.…
