The new Retina MacBook Pro looks nice, but the extra pixels are basically useless. And no Optical Drive means it’s a $2100 netbook…

#precipitate: Watching Twitter Aggregate The World’s Pulse

alternate title: My Love Letter To Twitter

This should be no secret to anyone: Twitter is my favorite social network. Twitter has earned my respect because the social network is impressive. Facebook and Twitter have the unique position of receiving a majority of the world’s thoughts, emotions and input on the world’s events and the pulse of the social scene.

Twitter aggregates these events better. Over the past hour, I have watched the Jerry Sandusky trial verdicts precipitate on Twitter. The key words of the case rose right to the top of Twitter’s trending topics.

I’ve been using Twitter since it was a baby social network, long before it was a social media bohemoth, like it is today.

Twitter will be a great social network for years to come, because they love and listen to their users (how could you not–they’re very social).

Twitter’s main feature set was put in place by its users: @username tagging, #hashtagging were all features used by Twitter users before the features were developed into the product. These features, as well as Twitter’s impressive push platform, have managed to make Twitter the fastest, most accurate (albeit chaotic with a low signal-to-noise ratio) to let the interests of the people be aggregated and to let them #precipitate.
