Quommm …. on. Cold coffee in Berlin was fun and the lasting memory of check point Charlie was not the rush toward freedom but the use of a twitter wall. The Berlin twitter wall was my first taste of the new transparency as a face-to-face medium and I am not sure if I agree. In fact the whole phenenoma of closed groups using digtial communications to talk about others amongst themselves is slightly unnerving. It strikes me that as telecoms and Internet colide that there is a need to reassess some of the rules around digital communications. Does the personal closed, opt-in world of telecoms over ride the established ideas of Internet? Certainly in terms of Twitter and how it is being used there seems to be a need for a new Twittiquette. Any thoughts on what this would look like? Is it a sounding board or a broadcast mega phone?
