50 millions tweets a day? It has indeed come to this, as Mashable Ben and many other sources report. The statistic reminds me, as I’m sure it reminds many others, of the Bruce Springsteen song “57 Channels (And Nothin’ On).”
But of course, there are things on, on TV, and even on Twitter. It’s just that I can get the content I value through other channels.
When it comes to social media, I can subscribe to your blog. When it comes to TV or movies, I can catch you on Netflix, or… Perhaps I’m stuck in the middle, liking old-school social media such as blogs and feeds, and new media channels for movies and TV, such as Youtube and Netflix.
I am impressed with 50 million tweets as quantity. I’m still waiting to be impressed by Twitter when it comes to quality.
