My comment didn’t show up @nytimes, or my “User Account Banned” – ? @BostonPhoenix

Thanks to @whet @ The 312 – Chicago and “The New York Times’s Bill Keller comes to bury Twitter…” http://bit.ly/iA8xeY

Best of all, @psychcentral – “Psychology and mental health information and support…” and “8 Reasons Why Twitter Can Make You Happy” http://bit.ly/jDLTHY

Perhaps, Mr. Keller is just using one of the world’s first social networks – gossip!?

No thought to the fact that there are blogs on NYTimes.com or that the two can co-exist. Regardless of his labored attempts to embrace the Web, he is an old school journalist, wistful for the “good old days” of one-way editorial communication and will never fully get the Web. That’s why they need to replace him with someone who truly buys into the Web. But to do that, senior management would have to as well, and they don’t. They just pay lip service to it and will never embrace it fully themselves.

Should we infer that the New York Times feels the user-generated content on Wikipedia is more reliable and stable than the edited content on Huffington Post?

Where do Times reporters turn for their research? I’m not sure I can handle the truth of the matter. Thank Goodness I don’t get my news from the Times (or the HuffPost or Wikiepedia).

I think you have used this phrase incorrectly… http://bit.ly/aCtKJ
