Below is an excerpt of a Jimmy C email from earlier this morning. We were discussing Twitter.
I'm not the Twitter master, in part because it's hard enough to keep up with the 15 people when you've got every lunch, dinner, tagged song, bookmark, and fart someone enjoyed in a day. I think in the long run Twitter will need to develop some form of inclusive or exclusive filtering so people can define that they only care about people's "ideas" and "travel" and "some other tag". Or, I care about everything except that an alarm clock woke them up and their toaster tweeted that they had toast and their refrigerator tweeted that they opened the door and their car was started at 9:15 and is 5 miles SW of Greer, etc, etc.
This concept of having information feed to you is great and different from search, but they will have the same glut of information problem that Google solved. However, search solved the problem for information seekers. Some sort of filtering will have to be the solution to solve the information consumer's problem of information overload from feeds of all sorts, email, RSS, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
That is all.
PPS: I like Twitter. Twitter is good.
