Twittering away

Continuing the theme of my last post, Yo NO soy Tuitero was the title of a recent report in El Pais Semanal. The article pointed out that while over 500 million people have a Twitter account that is only 22% of all internauts which certainly puts the statistic in perspective. The story continues with a list of famous people explaining why they would never use Twitter.

This is just one of many articles I have read recently not necessarily against Twitter and social media but pointing out that, despite their enourmous growth and popularity, not everyone uses them and not everybody thinks that they are all that wonderful or necessarily the future.

Technology certainly changes quickly (I have read a recent article treating IWBs in the past tense) and for me the question is always, not what the next big thing is, but rather what the last big fad left behind.
