In last week’s COM125 class on online communities, I reviewed my students’ experiences with Twitter and ran their impressions across frameworks from our readings on communities, both online and offline. You can see their responses here. I surmised that even though you can add as much friends as you want on Twitter, it still seems to be more of an ad-hoc community which forms when the need arises. One of my students, Jonathan Yip, made a succinct point by mentioning how “Twitter is not a ‘making more friends’ network. It is a ‘make better friends’ network”.
