Twitter and Tumblr in Chicago Tribune

Wednesday, 21 March 2007

Twitter was written about by Eric Gwinn, Chicago Tribune staff reporter along with Tumblr in a piece about short-form social media. He included a nice quote by Twitterer, Dana Power.

World gets 21st Century totem poles: “Dana Power, a computer programmer from Raleigh, N.C., says her brother who lives in Texas introduced her to Twitter so they can stay in touch: ‘I hardly ever corresponded with him, but with Twitter, I can see what he is doing at a given point in his life,’ she says. ‘It makes me feel more connected to him somehow.’”
