I donâ€™t claim to understand everything there is to understand about Twitter. (If you donâ€™t understand that itâ€™s impossible to fully understand Twitterâ€¦well, then you donâ€™t understand Twitter.) I have, however, formed some strong opinions about what I call Twitter mythperceptions. After the jump, my stab at addressing ten of â€˜em.
"Like novels, magazines, and movies, Twitter is a judgment-neutral container. Some people fill it with garbage, others with wonderful stuff."
"I encounter confusion over Twitter every day, especially in the real world as I chat with folks who have either never used it, or have tried it and then walked away."
