Twitter Explained

Finally a really cogent explanation of the key difference between the facebook SOCIAL graph and the twitter INTEREST graph.  Twitter makes more sense to me because as compared to Facebook it is:

  • Organized around shared interests, not personal relationships
  • Public by default, not private by default
