Twittering Tuesday

OK, I'll admit it, I'm a sucker for net-fads.

I'll hop on whatever private/public-alpha-beta-whatever service that promises to connect me to some sort of something or be the great leap towards a semantic web.

This year the big one for me has been twitter.

Less overwhelming than facebook, nobody has yet tried to sell me to a zombie via tiwtter.

They have, however, tried to sell my attention, buy my attention, or sell me someone else's attention.

This whole social-web scenario is overrun with marketers in search of monetization. Am I the only one finding that it's starting to drownd out real conversation?

By real I mean nonviralmarkety, like, an actual discussion rather than "RT @wannabefameous this great event/cause needs support. #followthursday #fameball #needsattention #noactualskillsotherthansmarm"
