Microblogging is not RSS

Microblogging tools are distinct from RSS Reader tools. They are all great tools. They are distinct from backchanneling tools. Recently, Will expressed his views about the misuse of Twitter.

Misuse of Twitter is like sandpaper, it just rubs the wrong way-ouch! We have several excellent tools in our web2.0 toolbox. Each one has a distinct use. I once heard a famous chef say to use the correct tool for the job. He of course was referring to cooking utensils.
I continue to be rather irritated at the misuse of Twitter. Each tool is not meant to be used for other purposes. Please stop misusing the tools in your toolbox!
