Twitter in the Funnies

Posted by: Rob Hof on August 31, 2007


I know about Twitter, and even use it. But I’m squarely in the Silicon Valley echo chamber. Do you think most of the readers of the comic strip Sally Forth have even heard of the online notification service? I guess this could mean the general population is catching the Web 2.0 wave more than I thought. But I don’t think so, not yet. More likely, strip creators Francesco Marciuliano and Craig Macintosh are trying rather overmuch to be hip. Anyway, more power to the folks at Twitter for getting their buzz (and their undeniably useful service) out into the right places.
