and for those who still can't find time to twitter

Now there's Flutter. Limited to 26 characters. Imports Twitter and FB posts, editing them to fit. "Sucking last of latte before facing client in meeting" becomes "Sucking client in meeting." Full GPS capabilites auto-announces wherever you are. As in helpfully informative: "In the bathroom."

Of course, it's a (really well done & worth watching) spoof. But it does bring up a serious question being bantered about among many social media-minded. What's the next big thing? Is there life after twitter?

I wouldn't be surprised if this was real.

@golublog Confession. For the first 15 sec or so, I thought that it was ;)

I see the comedy in this but I don't see why there is an unquenchable need for the latest greatest thing. While people insist on Twitting and listening to music on their iPhone, I'm writing in a notebook and buying cd's and LP's. I was definitely born a decade too early :)
