Will Facebook Replace Twitter?

Posted by: Douglas MacMillan on March 16, 2009

So without further ado…

How could Facebook make you stop using Twitter?

Answers below from a few people who responded to my tweet. Please leave your own thoughts in the comment section below. And to get in on the next unofficial BW-Twitter poll, be sure to follow my updates here: @dmac1
