Twitter is just paranoid info overload

Perish the thought that Twitter ever make it past the corporate firewall. Bringing this 'tool' into the workplace is an absolute recipe for disaster. Imagine the interruptive capacity of email married to chat, sister of SMS. Admittedly I have signed up and experimented with it myself and see it as a useful tool to keep appraised of the movements and meanderings of a half a dozen people, but any more than that, for me at least, it's just overload. I have to laugh when I check out who is following who and see that some people are following TENS OF THOUSANDS of people. I mean, come on! If you have not cottoned on to Twitter yet take this 4 minute animation in. Right on the money!
