I'd like to think I could get into analysis of Twitter posts in an easy way, but I don't think I will find any great revelation. What I see are integration points, and they surface information, yet they require a fair bit of scanning still and lack aggregation. That seems to be at the heart of my interest, that any form of information gathering should reduce the time to analyze, not make it greater. So here is an example: I come across the following post in which feeds are pulled by keyword:
OK, so that is somewhat useful, but look at the excerpt of the tweets below. At least half of them are direct replies, which means the context is lost because you can't click into dialogues between people who aren't in your follow you/follow me realm, and another subset of the tweets refer to ebooks generally, so is that useful?
Comments on this initial thought are welcome. It is end of day here in the Windy City, and so I'm going to stop thinking and start again tomorrow.
