Is twitter good for the world?

    I would argue that it is very beneficial, for a few reasons:

    1)  One of China's versions of twitter helped block government censorship:  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/29/world … l&_r=0

    2)  I think it brings out the best of humanity.  When there is a tragedy or tough situation, twitter usually gives love and awareness for any victims.

    3)  In the long term I think it promotes a darwinism of opinions.  When people give quality opinions they are retweeted and spread.  Senseless opinions can be satirically destroyed.

    Any thoughts?

    Twitter is only good for two things: snappy one-liners and project status updates.

    I think Twitter can be a very beneficial.  It is certainly a good promotional tool when used correctly.
