So like IRC - it is likely to be full of misunderstandings with people
replying to the wrong post out of sequence.

I see.

I find it extraordinary that Twitter can be seriously adopted as a
discussion forum technology.
But I await the outcome of Wednesdays discussions before passing
judgement.

I think the frustration level of 140 Characters will result in a lack of
sunbstantive constructive useable Internet feedback.

But I am sure that either way - the result will be an amazing success,
at least politically.
