“Twitter has been around for years, but only recently has it become the tool-de-jour for people in the public eye. Along the way we’ll see the inevitable story of losing a job because of Twitter, a marriage broken up over Twitter, probably a tear-jerking tale of a family being reunited by Twitter, and then something new will be on the scene.”

Nick Gillard-Byers, as quoted in Indiscreet Tweets

All the hoopla about Twitter brings back memories of what it was like when the Internet was new.  Right now there are concerns about privacy — next step will be cries about how advertising has ruined a good thing. Because you can bet your bottom dollar that ads will be coming to Twitter.
