A semi-serious piece about the continued growth and media reception of mircoblogging service Twitter. As many other recent articles, this one gives the subject a relatively superficial treatment. The Doonesbury cartoon and HubSpot graph are given no attribution and are not linked to their original source.
I've written a few articles on Twitter, and there is more to the story here. The writer gets to a bit of it -- drawing parallels to the early telegraph service -- but there are reasons why Twitter grows and breaks news first. I'd like to see a much more in-depth treatment of how clearly defined Twitter subgroups are using the service.
