Stefano’s Stuffs

Twit, Twit…

I’m trying in various way to understand the real power of Twitter and how to use it in a “pro” way. There are great difference of skill levels between novices (like me) and Twitter long-time experts: the use of some wonderful 3rd parties software, the right use of command like “RT”, “#”, “@”, the complicated netiquette of so short messages makes the things heavy like understand how to write in some late 90’s BBS/Chats.
The change of Twitter homepage (now is “Share and discover what’s happening right now, anywhere in the world”…With a recent modern minimalist webdesign that probably will overtake every type of internet layout in a few time) made me realize that the project behind this site is really big and complicated (and the authors know about it, because they say “We plan to build Twitter, Inc into a successful, revenue-generating company that attracts world-class talent with an inspiring culture and attitude towards doing business.”)and I don’t know how fare will it go at the moment.
In Italy Twitter is not really diffused now because a lot of people thinks about it like a “castrated” version of Facebook (a totally different site, fully of contents, advertising and images of your old schoolmates…But obiouvsly SO good, I give it a 9.5/10 score) or because, in simply words, it’s not so easy to understand the reason to use Twitter(and the new webpage surely doesn’t help a lot…:-)) but I’m sure that people has yet to discover it.
