More on micro-blogging

I've spent some more time exploring this micro-blogging activity and in particular some of the gadgets that you can use with Twitter on your mobile phone and with web applications such as blogger, facebook, and igoogle just to name a few.

What is even more interesting to me is the Twitter wiki that has a community of contributers adding to "Twitter Etiquette", similar to how email and net etiquette developed a decade or so ago....

Also I ran across an interesting paper presented at a conference last month by a group of scholars from the University of Maryland on "Why we Twitter" (see ) . Some of these communication patterns are interesting and would make for an interesting addition and discussion to our Communication Theory course in the Instructional Technology program.
Thoughts and comments are welcomed.... Still the digital immigrant...Lois
