Although Twitter has many positive aspects, I prefer face-to-face communication during which I can speak directly to family and friends. According to the recent study, Twitter Study Tracks when We Are :), there are only specific times of day when twitter is productive, as the positive comments usually come during the morning hours, 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and the comments become more negative later in the day until it reaches about 6 p.m. It will also be impossible to predict someone’s mood while tweeting at any given time. Additionally the issue of privacy is jeopardized, because there are hackers everywhere who might have the potential to invade someone’s personal information and privacy. Finally, I choose to use Skype rather than tweeting, because the latter’s accuracy is questionable.
On twitter, are you :) or are you :(
