Twitter as most see it...

So last year I did a project for a media research methods class that involved research into Twitter and its' effectiveness with college students. Part of my research included finding out general knowledge about the capabilities of Twitter, as well as the overall sentiment towards Twitter from the general public, which led me to this video.
It is part of a series of tech-related cartoon shorts called Current, that each humorously describes different aspects of Web 2.0 culture, and as you can see, this video alone has over 2 million views.

Twitter in my opinion is much more than what this video depicts, however it is very interesting nonetheless because it shows how people have viewed Twitter for a long time, and it shows why many people had stayed away from and continue to avoid this vastly growing social media.
Please enjoy.
