Another timely Michael Fitzgerald reality check; see the full post for more details

Steve Gillmor recently blogged about Twitter as earthshaker, calling it a communications platform that will blow right past everything except platforms that allow it to dominate.

I wish he would’ve limited his post to 140 words (we won’t force a blogger to use only 140 characters). That said, there’s something to his idea that Twitter represents a powerful twist on communications. It’s sort of like a digital, everyday Christmas card (such cards, after all, invented the one-to-many communique). That’s absolutely powerful.

It’s also absolutely tedious.
