Twitter Co Founder Biz Stone on the Colbert Show

twitter has become the next big thing because it gives people personal control and a communication channel to finally tell their life story, make new friendships, build relationships, help others, and spread this message. The main reason i love twitter is that it adds more transparency to our society which is heavily needed right now.

It all comes down to colbert's lack of education on twitter and he does not fully understand the power of this tool/ social networking/ micro blog site like many others. I on the other hand probably would not be able to hold in my excitement and positive message of why and how twitter can change the world- one tweet at a time. heres the clip
