  12. 12. The Cons Blogger Kathy Sierra explains in a post, Is Twitter Too Good? Twitter scares me. For all its popularity, I see at least three issues: • it's a near-perfect example of the psychological principle of intermittent variable reward, the key addictive element of slot machines. • The strong "feeling of connectedness" Twitterers get can trick the brain into thinking it's having a meaningful social interaction, while another (ancient) part of the brain "knows" something crucial to human survival is missing. • Twitter is yet another--potentially more dramatic--contribution to the problems of always-on multi- tasking ... you can't be Twittering (or emailing or chatting, of course) and simultaneously be in deep thought and/or a flow state.

  15. 15. Twitter apps • Twitpic Is a web based Twitter application that allows the uploading of photo and/or video to your tweet. • Tweetdeck Is a desktop application that allows you to fully use the Twitter experience—uploading photos; shortening URL’s;tracking groups; tracking one twitter account; tracking keywords. By using columns across your screen it gives you different slices of your Twitter environment.
