Wall Street Journal reports that Twitter has made a reasonable  initial stock offering. STOP  I’ll bet very few of the investor class tweet a lot, personally. Their minions do it for them. STOP  Same for any one else who who puts in a long work week using their computer. STOP.

Guess which demographic increasingly is adopting Twitter?
Besides, that is, people with job titles like VP of Social Media or Manager, Market Development or Public Relations Assistant. STOP

AtlantaBlackStar reports that “According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, 28 percent of online African-Americans use Twitter,  compared to just 12 percent for whites and 14 percent for Hispanics.”  High-use groups rely  on smart phones for internet access.  In other words, they don’t have PC’s with keyboards, so twitter is a convenient alternative.

Twitter makes sense if you don’t mind opinions without attribution or supporting facts. .  –. — .. -. –.   -… .- -.-. -.-   … – .. .-.. .-..   ..-. .- .-. – …. . .-.   .. -.   – .. — . –..–   .– .   -.-. .- -.   … . .   …. — .–   – …. .. …   … .. – ..- .- – .. — -.   -.. . …- . .-.. — .–. . -.. .-.-.-  I maintain that the increased use of twitter on news and punditry shows contributes to our national vertigo.
