Twitter attention span
I have a Twitter attention span.
I expect speech utterances, blog posts, chat entries, forum remarks, telephone messages, and all other communications to be 140 characters or less, with occasional content strings of 280 or 420 characters.
We sputter now. We don't go on and on like a traditional blog post. We barely have the space, within our textual confinement, to be myopic or misanthropic. We have to stifle the narcissism, and get right to the point.
Perhaps this reality is what inspired my recent comment at TechCrunch "Everyone's Gunning for YouTube".
YouTube is said to be threatened by Joost and other longer duration video and television over the internet pipes and protocols. I doubt it. At least for my creatively fractured mentality.
Here's the comment I posted at TechCrunch:
Non-inclusive conclusion: have you seen my latest YouTube video, posted today? It's called "the amazing uPhone, u not i" and it's less than 2 minutes.
Go watch it, if you want.
