"But the people on TV rarely seem to address something very basic: What's the point of tweeting?"
A few weeks ago, Slate's Mickey Kaus coined the term "Twitterola" and I began to think I was missing out on something. But now Slate's Farhad Manjoo says it's totally OK not to join so: whew. Although. Seth Godin is right: I am bored. Back to Manjoo: "The best Twitterers post a few times a day, but with care—like the best bloggers, they aim for comedy, insight, and drama and to share cool links. They also don't overload their followers. I've dropped people for tweeting too often; more than three times an hour seems excessive." Yeah. He's right. That's way too much pressure.
