What do we think, Afterworld? Has it changed our lives for the better?
I use Twitter a lot for work. It’s my first point of call every morning to see what’s happening and what everyone’s saying about it. It’s pretty much always first with new news, not always accurately, but way ahead of other media.
I never really got on with it for personal use. I’m just not interesting enough to share so much of myself so often. The worst thing is the way that nonsense and misinformation can gain credibility through volume and repetition. If something’s retweeted enough, it becomes true. As an ex-journo and now a lobbyist, that scares and frustrates me equally. On the other hand, it’s the perfect medium for great jokes and bad puns, two of the finest things in the world.
