Is Twitter a Social Network?

Here is another interesting article about Twitter; it comes as a response to the other article¬†notAmoment2spare has published yesterday, titled ‘Twitter as a business model’. Robin Wauters argues here that Twitter is a social network, stating that this is not only for the distribution and re-distribution of information; it also serves as a platform of connecting, communicating and sharing information with friends. But how a real ‘social network’ can be defined and how this differentiates Twitter from Facebook? There is a debate here, as for most of the people the division is obvious, as they mostly use Facebook for social networking – in terms of getting in touch with other people – and Twitter for getting and distributing information and knowledge (is this really involved in the social networking terminology?). Future will show!
