140 characters party people
By   |  Culture,  Social,  User Experience 

Is this information overload driving you crazy? There’s a lot going on and you find yourself wishing for another 24 hours just to make sure you grab the daily basics?

Twitter and the 140 character thing is the rearview mirror of our society, but is it the solution? Maybe, just maybe. For example, Spin Magazine (one of the most influential music magazines in the world) has decided long music reviews are dead. Now they’re doing it on Twitter with 140 characters and all. Yeah, you miss a lot of information and maybe it is a little simplistic, but you’ll read it. Will you read a 3000 character music review? I doubt it. Maybe if it is on Pitchfork, the most influential webzine in the world by far.

I’m not defending Spin’s position; I think the answer lies somewhere in the middle and I don’t think this is not adaptable for every market. You can write great things in 140 characters, but not sustainable ones. Recently, I repositioned my personal blog and started to write 140 character reviews. They’re useful for everyone. It is a big part of my weekly writing. I don’t have the time to write 1500 character reviews everyday and you don’t have the time do read it. Anyway, when the album deserves it, I write something that I’ll be proud of.

But don’t get me wrong: I’m still looking for answers too.
