Twitter in The Economist

Friday, 15 February 2008

The Economist magazine recently published a flattering article about Twitter. The article was titled A-Twitter and it compared Twitter to a form of abbreviated communication used by foreign correspondents in the first half of the 20th century called cablese.

The Economist celebrated the restraints imposed by Twitter as “a strength,” referring to our character limit as “poetic form.” We like that! Finally, the piece declares Twitter “hard to dismiss.” That’s the stuff!
