Comments on: Most teens find “tweeting” pointless — Morgan Stanley http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/07/13/most-teens-find-tweeting-pointless-morgan-stanley/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Liam http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/07/13/most-teens-find-tweeting-pointless-morgan-stanley/#comment-369365 Mon, 16 Nov 2009 23:57:07 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=18095#comment-369365 This is totally untrue! I’m 18 and noway think like this… Well Ok maybe about the gadgets lol!

But no I love Twitter!
I’m pretty addicted actually! I also love listening to radio programmes (OK not regular/devoted listener) cus it keeps me like connected to the rest of the world!

Sometimes I have a skim through a newspaper too, and read a few articles that are a bit interesting expecially late at night when it is relaxing and quiet!

Lol you are kinda generalizing teens there and I don’t agree.

God Bless

Oh and if any teen (If there “are” any) or anyone else for that matter would like to follow me, please do!

Its a perfect use of the technology, real-time headlines.

Take a look at this http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-dealzon e/2009/07/01/live-blogging-the-gm-bankru ptcy-hearing/

This is just one of many examples of the usefulness of micro-blogging. There are some obvious commercial models that work around this as well.

The Twitter model is what’s important, not necessarily Twitter itself. Twitter’s value proposition is around the viral adoption of its delivery model.

Ultimately a mix of free and premium content with an appropriate commercial structure will either make or break Twitter as a company.

Nobody is going to take the time to tweet once the novelty is over, even with a real keyboard. Now I keep hearing that I was right. (Exception: People who stand to make lots of money, etc., by tweeting. But a blog is better.)

While “inked” has good points, I think they’ve applied to every generation (with much individual variation, now as ever, which makes the ageist epithet distasteful), and if young people in fact did tweet a lot it wouldn’t help those concerns. I’ve also seen plenty of garbage in newspapers. And those young people are using search engines to learn things “inked” may never know.

Better to hype it up, and IPO it than write it off. Like the 15 year old says — anyone who has got a life could care less what what you are doing.

Twitter will only go away if they start charging fees to use it. Name any other service where you can directly communicate to famous people, media, politicians, etc. You can’t get their emails, but you can get their twitter name and see if they are regularly updating.

Do you realize that the young people that you denegrate so carelessly are the same people currently defending nations across the world? Soldiers are young, remember; they consume media through the same outlets that other young people do. I, as a college student, know many capable software writers and engineers who may go on to design cars and other important goods. One would think that someone who clearly feels that young people are ignorant and their elders know everything about how media should be consumed would know how to spell “shiny.” Just because media consumption methods change from generation to generation does not mean that today’s youth is any less intelligent than previous generations.

Well, good luck, kiddies. When you figure out how to write software, plant a field of corn, design and build a car, defend your nation on some battlefield or prevent your government from trading your freedoms away for a bag of shiney beads — by texting — you just might save yourselves from starvation.
