re: Why Mobile Twitter Users Are Different
Yeah, I do the same thing-- flag some site that I want to look at later but then never get around to it. That issue aside, this article matches my own experience. On a computer, I use Twitter mostly as a firehouse of semi-reliable, up-to-the-minute news. On mobile, I'm much more likely to interact with others, comment on whatever I'm doing, etc. Twitter's come to fill a number of roles, but I've always found it particularly interesting as a real-time method for coordinating people via mobile devices-- flash mobs, protests, etc.
