Wofür man das gebrauchen kann, weiß ich noch nicht genau, aber ich finde es toll:
Wenn du ausführlicher als in “140” auf einen Tweet antworten willst, gehe in die Tumblr-App, setze @nerddeutschland und Text in den Titel & gib normal Text ins Texfeld ein. Deine tumblr- Antwort erscheint dadurch…
“As users begin to embrace this notion of ubiquitous computing, with their content and apps moving seamlessly from device to device, place to place, and screen to screen, Apple will have the opportunity to truly set the stage for the next generation of computing: interconnected consumer social interaction. Leading us, inevitably, to a truly post-PC world: A world where the PC is no longer required or in many cases, even needed.”—http://j.mp/ifdJVR
This was obviously an intentional decision on the part of Apple to emphasize that the future of Mac control was multitouch, not the mouse. Just as you can use iOS devices with a stylus, you’ll most likely be able to use the mouse to control Macs for a long time to come, but Apple is positioning a multitouch trackpad as the primary input method.
The experience of making the iPhone and its subsequent success had convinced Apple that multitouch surfaces were the future of computer control, much in the way that Jobs’ visit to Xerox Parc convinced him that the GUI and mouse combination was the future of computer control 30 years ago.
In some ways, Twitter can be a preferable identity system to Facebook. Twitter is built around publishing–it is fundamentally about sharing content. On Twitter, everyone is on a soapbox, performing for an audience–that’s the nature of its one-way communication. Whereas Facebook, as one Web start-up CEO said to me today, seems a lot more like your government-approved driver’s license.
On Twitter, there isn’t as much of the Facebook awkwardness of expressing your true self to your true friends, hiding your embarrassing photos from your boss and your politics from your grandma, and remembering those random people you friended but aren’t sure why.
In some ways, Twitter may indeed be a more effective place to share content.
“The Twitter Paradox is fascinating to study. I don’t believe mainstream adoption is a metric that matters to Twitter or to those who understand its benefits. Surely mass adoption is important to investors. But as a human network, we make the world a much smaller place, creating a global culture that connects people to information and events as they happen. And, through a stroke of fate or democratized serendipity, people effect how information travels and how events unfold. But at a minimum, Twitter has become an infinite well of incredible insight and intelligence and for that, it is already an indispensable service to businesses, governments, educators, and anyone who is impacted by the words and impressions of others.”—http://zite.to/ifD6el
“In the end, Twitter is unlike either speech or writing because it is a fusion of both. We are speaking, but with computer keyboards — and we are talking to thousands of people, some of whom we have never met, which simply wasn’t possible before the Internet came along. So in a very real sense, we are making the rules up as we go. Which tends to make things a lot less predictable, but also a lot more interesting.”—http://dlvr.it/V5Hcv
“Tufekci noted that those who are more familiar with oral cultures — users from Eastern Europe, for example, or African-American users — often seem more comfortable with the transient nature of social media, the inability to pin things down, the fact that information is constantly changing, and so on. Those are things that we are accustomed to when we speak to others.”—http://dlvr.it/V5Hcv
