This Twitter thing (which “I’m on”:http://twitter.com/nielsthooft, if you hadn’t noticed) is interesting. It’s the status message in your IM app. It’s micro-blogging. It’s a continuous Reply All without having to delete all the messages. It’s a giant IRC channel the cool people you know, and you, are always on, where you don’t have to say something, all the time. It’s also — because so many people find it interesting, probably — really slow right now.
