Tech Note: The Retweet Button

Back to Twitter-
Could a fan tell me what twitter will do for my web/communication experience?
Frankly I have not been impressed by the concept. Linking in why…
As I watched this unfold, I likened Twitter to a bad game of telephone. As far as I could tell, there was no sourced Web site or story. It was simply someone saying it on Twitter as millions mourned the death of Fawcett and the apparent death of the world’s most famous pop idol. Celebs were seemingly dropping like flies (Ed McMahon had died only days earlier), and I assume a handful of pranksters thought it would be fun to chime in on Twitter with some “what ifs.”
