BW Magazine Story about Twitter

Heather Green

I did a story this week for the magazine about Twitter. It's always tricky to take something that has been discussed with such depth and passion online and write about it for a more general audience. What I tried to do was explain why there was such a debate about it and waht I think that represents.

In the story I wrote that "Twitter forces into the open a basic schism--between those who want to know what everyone is doing all the time and those who are revolted at the idea of giving up that information or caring about anyone else's."

It's not a trivial debate. (Unlike the headline, which unfortunately changed after the last time I saw it.) And whatever happens to Twitter, I do think that it represents something that's here to stay because we are the information era.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
