There has been a lot of discussion both here at AllTwitter and in the Twitter-sphere in general about how Twitter is affecting language.
The latest round of the debate was sparked by some rather incendiary comments made by actor Ralph Fiennes, who claims that Twitter is dumbing down the English language (even though he doesn’t actually have a Twitter account himself to verify this claim).
But those on the other side have a more experienced, if less famous, champion to back their protests up: a linguistic professor has stepped into the fray to pour water on the theory that Twitter is destroying language.
He’s amassed nearly 1,800,000 followers, has tweeted more than 2,700 times and he’s one of the funniest people on Twitter. Comedian Steve Martin has embraced Twitter more than many of his celebrity pals – and he’s taking his tweeting one step further, to an “offline” format: A book.
Did you know that Herman Cain is the Republican Presidential candidate most likely to be retweeted? Or that Newt Gingrich tweets nearly 500 times in a week?
The Associated Press took a hard look at how the Presidential candidates are using Twitter to promote themselves and their campaigns, and found that 140-character skills among the political elite varied wildly.
Need a little weekend reading? We’ve compiled our top ten Twitter stories of the week, which includes how almost all employers now use social media to screen job applicants, where in a tweet you should place your links, why your Klout score is important, how marketers are using Twitter and a new milestone for Twitter as Lady Gaga passes 15 million followers.
It might seem like the only things that affect the amount you get retweeted are your follower count and what you’re tweeting – but the timing of your tweets is just as important. You might notice that when you tweet at certain times of the day you get more retweets than when you tweet at others, and you’re not alone. Finding the best time to tweet is crucial to reaching the most engaged audience on Twitter – and Timely, a new app from Flowtown, will help you find that time-of-day sweet spot. For free.
Ralph Fiennes thinks that kids today have difficulty with words over two syllables, and that Twitter is to blame.
What do you get for someone who is completely obsessed with Twitter? This poster is a good place to start.
