Information overload on Twitter

leave a comment »

In january 2009, there were 2.4 million tweets a day. By October, there were 26 millions tweets a day!!!!

Simply put, there is way too much information on Twitter“.

Plans of Twitter are to add geolocation features and to re-enforce privacy opt-ins.

For the technological optimists, the cures for information overload, in essence, are better filters and greater context. The more you know about a message -who sent it and why – the better you understand it
