Just a quick note to those people who insist on tweeting "New blog post: The Lump of Green Putty I Found in My Armpit One Mid-Summer Morning" and the like:

You have thoroughly failed to grok both media.

That is all.

*applause*

And conversely, the same applies to those who update their LJ with their tweets.

Well, TBF the birdcage.pl "microblog" people are only /necessarily/ failing at one medium. They might still be reasonable twitter users...

No, I think they fail at Twitter, too--the ambient intimacy of Twitter works so well becuase it's contextual and sorta realtime, and the tweetdumps to blogs are neither.

Sure, but if I'm /not/ reading their blog, but I am reading their twitter, then I still benefit from those aspects. Ergo, they're not /necessarily/ failing at twitter, but they are certainly failing at blogging.

Well, when I see a blog post on "To tweet or not to tweet, a web 2.0 guide", I'll let you know.

Dude, I am getting old for this. I mean, I remember Usenet being number one awesomeness, messed ASCII art sigs and all man.
