The De-evolution of Twitter

How do we move the needle back to conversations? Beth Harte and I were talking about how there seems to be a dearth of conversations on Twitter these days. A year ago we were complaining about the growing cacophony of echo in the Twitter sphere. Now it appears that everyone doesn’t have time to talk, so they just shoot a title and a link out with or without attributes.

My advice would be to take the time to talk with the people that took the time to talk with you. take the time to say something instead of just pushing another link out. Value just doesn’t lie in the quality of the information that you share, but also in the quality of what you have to say.

However the irony is not lost on me on the way that I choose to promote this post. I will go to Twitter and tweet the title and the link. How do you “fix” that?
