Twitter is soooo over

The end of Twitter was marked by a Humphies interview on R4's Today programme this morning announcing that it was the next big thing. Back in March of 2007 - a year and a half ago - I posted:
OK, a Raedwald prediction. Twitter, a new mobile-accessible service on which users can post 140 character messages answering one simple question, "What are you doing right now?", will be huge. It's a modern Tower of Babel for those with the attention span of a goldfish and a reading age of seven - about two-thirds of the world's teen population.
The end was nigh when I posted in July this year on Hazel Blears using it to launch a White Paper; perhaps the most inane thing I've ever seen on a government website.

Up to my eyes in work, but the serious posts will resume shortly as they say.

Disagree. Twitter is an excellent social media tool. (You don't actually believe what's on the Beeb do you?)
