IN TODAY'S EDITORIAL section of the Guardian, yet-another affirmation of Twitter appears for readers. It's important to note that the Guardian's take isn't the same as many in Irish mainstream media. "Twitter is the latest of a family of communications technologies that are breaking down barriers of geography, class and even shyness. Social networks such as Facebook and MySpace enable hook-ups with friends and friends after a time lag. Twitter and its much smaller voice equivalent, audioboo.fm, go much further by enabling you to follow any person or topic almost instantaeously. Since the 140 characters can include a web address, you can, unlike texting, view videos after one click. Twitter or a rival could become a major video channel with choices influenced by people you trust." This little sentence is one of the nubs of a $700 Forrester report. The most interesting developments will follow on the heels of what Twitter has carved out--the world's most vibrant village gossip network.
