The Buzz: Blogospherics -- Micro-blogging Mania

While the rumor that Google is in "late stage negotiations" to acquire Twitter, the social networking website based on text message-style entries of 140 characters, hasn't been confirmed, the feasibility of such a notion says volumes about Twitter's massive rise in popularity over the past years. Now the third-largest social networking website (behind facebook and myspace), Twitter has revolutionized the way information is generated and communicated. Naturally, ScienceBloggers are no stranger to this micro-blogging phenomenon. Bora from A Blog Around the Clock reflects on how social networking tools like blogs and micro-blogs are reshaping the journalistic workflow, while Jessica Palmer from Bioephemera entertains the spoof notion that actually, nano-blogging with entries of 26 characters max will be the real revolutionary tool.
