Sometimes I think the Interwebz are dumb. Or suveys are total BS. Someone is jumping to a causality conclusion when perhaps a little commons sense could be employed.
Like maybe comparing the Twitter usage to other media, online and otherwise, than just some random message board. Giving student free reign to utilize any method they deemed appropriate for the task and not requiring that those with suspect web 2.0 social skills be compared to those required to be all "woot, woot, web 1.0 and check out my sweet Walkman, beyotches!" Jebus, at least give them Facebook and an email distribution alias. I got dumber just reading about that survey. And I can't even blame Twitter (which I still contend is totally not for me...I tried).
Oh, to live in that binary bubble. Oil or cream?
