Tried to explain to someone today that Twitter can still be "bad" at the same time it can be enormously relevant. 1/6
Twitter is about 350 million (its actual userbase is not that big) incredibly _addicted_ individuals who _crave_ attention. These people include many celebrities, business leaders, "thought leaders", _huge_ numbers of politicians, world leaders -- these people are pathologically addicted to attention. They will do anything to get it. They _need_ people to hear their voice. 2/6
