well, may be at least for me. it's no secret that my blogging frequency has plummeted as I took to twitter. twitter has been a more direct and the interaction is more instantaneous. however, with every tweet I post, a seed of a potential blog post is wasted. case in point, yesterday I tweeted the first if #ChuckNorriz was Jordanian. the reaction was a very active, and let me say hilarious, contribution from many Jordanian tweeps. had I made that into a post of all the iterations of Norriz' Jordanian-ness, it would have been at least a day to get my blog readers to be part of the tag line.
Also, the immediate feedback to a tweet/mention has eclipsed the best commenting system a blog could ever have. with twitter you are at liberty to read, comment, and write your own tweets all at the same time.
but, the 140 character limit of twitter inhibits one's ability to go at length in presenting a view point and/or comment/reply to others' reactions and opinions. this limitation might hamper Jordan's ديجيتال members of the government to have a meaningful dialogue with the masses. I am not against them using the medium. But, I think it should be a small part of a more comprehensive, two way conversation on Jordanian matters.
lastly, but certainly not least, there are those readers of this blog who never warmed up to the idea of twitter. I surely don't want to miss on their insights to whatever thoughts mab3oos dumbs in here!
good luck having all the above in one single tweet!
