Communication

Canary in a Coal Mine

Tried to use twitter today.  Received a note — too many tweets, over capacity, try again. One dead bird. Does not appear to have saved as a draft. Had to retype to send. Trying to figure out how this works, not a lot of guidance on the Twitter site.  Here is an interesting blog from Psychology Today by Moses Ma on the Psychology of Twitter. Ma believes that the impact of Twitter is amplified, and therefore there are significant implications for this learned behaviour in our face to face world.  We must learn by making mistakes. That’s what I tell my students. Yet our mistakes are amplified in the Twitterverse.
