Like my previous Silly Saturday/Friday Foolery this a post in the style of “A Picture is Worth a 1000 Words”.
It also fits in with my last post: “A Quantitave Study suggests that Twitter is not Primarily a Social Networking Site”
 As a matter of fact the first cartoon is from the presentation of Haewoon Kwak et al that I reviewed in that post, although they used it in a different context.
What do you think when you see this cartoon (by Ian D. Marsden)?
My first impression is that someone twitters instead of helping people out when there is a riot, accident, terrorist attack etc., but its meaning is positive: “During the Iranian election unrest Twitter was used as a powerful tool to get news out of the country”
 Twitter as it is seen by many…
A bit of self-mockery is always sound. Although of course my Twitter behavior is quite unlike that depicted above.
 But I do recognize the behavior of Twitter sheep like these (and I don’t mean the lonely sheep but the ‘sheepish followers of celebrities). Brilliant cartoon by Gerald the Sheep (Ben Gallagher)
 Noise to Signal also posts some excellent Twitter-cartoons (and Facebook, i-pad etc). The Cartoon below (from RobCottingham) is from the post: “Mommy, where do hashtags come from?” Do you know where # come from?
That is it for now.
And also from Ramona 🙂 ….Glad I’m not a lonely sheep)…
