Microblogging

Seth Godin on being ‘microblogging’ (e.g. Twitter, Facebook events, etc.) and being misunderstood:

You will be misunderstood
"If you’ve got 140 characters to make your point, the odds are you are going to be misunderstood (a lot)"

Yes, and: People have lower expectations for microblogging. People rarely expect a twitter to be understood, which makes them a good vehicle for raising curiosity and starting conversations.

(Or, you could think of microblogging as poetry.)
