“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”
Cohen, Noam. To filter noise on Twitter, location is everything. International Herald Tribune. November 10, 2009. p. 17
