How is this different than everyone having their own listserv?


Ron Miller

Sorry, I didn't see this comment. To answer your question, it's different in many ways. While listservs tend to be online communities, Twitter is more of rambling conversation. It has qualities of instant messaging, but the follow you/follow me model makes it different from that. It gives you access to a range of people with a variety of interests. Listservs are typically built around people with a common interest.

I encourage you to try it, it provides an outlet for communications, publicity, knowledge sharing, collaboration and more. And the 140 character limit keeps it simple.

Thanks for the comment.
