Terry Freedman spends a couple of months evaluating Twitter. "When Twitter first appeared on the scene," he writes, "I thought it sounded like a complete waste of time." And though he tries to be positive in his evaluation, it really reads like he found it to be a complete waste of time. "It can be fun, and it can be addictive too... so many of these sorts of networks that I can spend hours of an evening doing nothing except have conversations... So to some extent it's networking not to achieve something, but simply for the sake of networking."
