I’ve been musing recently on Twitter, thinking of it as a sort of scrap book. I get these randomly juxtaposed fragments of thoughts, observations, and images from widely disparate sources. One minute I’m furious as some political activist has successfully managed to pull my chain; the next minute I’m reading 50 tips for controlling slugs. I’m mulling over how this is shaping my thoughts and feelings, providing snippets of creative ideas. What is the role of social media in creative processes and creative reflection? Now, someone must have explored that one.
While I was looking for an image for this post, I found this article on ways that researchers can use Twitter. Also found that you can use @HideTag to hide #tag chat from followers.
