The hopelessness of one-way tweeting

It is clear that some people use Twitter simply for broadcasting outbound. Most celebrities tweet this way. In this sense Twitter becomes a mini-blog, which may be of some interest for fans of people like Stephen Fry and possibly Jordan.

But.....for the average person in the street, isn't tweeting one-way a bit like hanging out of the bedroom window and shouting in the darkness? It seems a bit nutty.

  1. I quite agree! I have an account but I just cant work out the point of it... other than the preverbial hanging out of the window (I like that!). Some business friends of mine say it is great for networking and being in touch with 'what is happening', but it doesn't do it for me, but then I am not business.
