Bernie DeKoven responded via on David Coleman’s “Twitter: Collaboration or Gossip”

David Coleman asks if Twitter is “collaboration or gossip.”

Bernie writes: “David is a friend of mine and a noted early advocate of collaborative technologies. However, I find myself surprised by his question. You’d think he’d know better”

First of all, asking if Twitter is about collaboration or gossip is like asking if the telephone is about collaboration or gossip. Twitter is a communication tool, and what it is “about” depends on what we decide to use it for. It is intelligently enough configured so we can use it pretty much how we want. Which is precisely why we use it.

And, second of all, gossip is collaboration, too”
