Interesting article: Twitter gets half the press coverage of Facebook, but a fraction of its traffic

While I think the title is syntactically horrid, the article does pose some interesting questions. Are people just talking about Twitter because everyone else is? Maybe it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy, where people think they should be on Twitter and make big news out of it because that’s what they think that’s where the trend is headed. I personally am not on Twitter (yet), because I get enough connectivity via Facebook, GChat, AIM, SMS messaging, four separate e-mail addresses, and telephony (remember actually hearing the sound of people’s voices?). But we’ll see.

So of course, the million dollar question is: Why is Twitter so popular?
