The New York Times is trying to gentrify Twitter. A column from a self-confessed parent contends that Twitter can be used to manage household communication. I suppose that's true, but that's like saying Craigslist's Casual Encounters can be used to meet really great friends.


(Okay, for the record, I'm being a little snotty here. OF COURSE people should use Twitter however they want to.)

Isn't that the beauty of it? I can see a vast array of possibilities...although, not all of them would pan out to be good ones.

Pretty sure her point was that she couldn't use Twitter very successfully for managing household communication.

I have a friend who loves to read Craiglist's Casual Encounter ads aloud at gatherings. I think you should use Twitter in whatever way that works for you.
