It doesn't matter
Something caught my attention in this story by Phil Shapiro. It was something he said in the video presentation he made--as he was describing what Twitter is and what people use it for, he made the argument that the term followers should be changed to listeners. This is where my brain started racing.
Whether you use Twitter or not, I'm curious to see what you think about this idea. Does simply changing a term change how people use a service? Does it change their perception? What do you think?
