The Twitter # May Save The Conversation
I must admit I may have been wrong about Twitter threatening public discourse. The # seems like it’s saving the conversation by allowing multiple people to follow a single streamed conversation, opposed to the non sequitur person to person tweet. Brands like Land Rover are recognizing the opportunity to create communal Twitter conversations: Its national ad campaign promotes #LRNY on billboards and taxi TVs around NYC. The risk for brands is receiving negative comments; yet, the risk for the public forum is losing a platform for dissent. Do you know any solid examples of dissenting views within Twitter that have birthed new ideas? Please discuss at #savetheconvo.
