Picture 26.pngThis past week a few of my friends who weren't at SXSW griped about the change in how people were using Twitter. Suddenly it became less about random thoughts and actions related to our individual lives, and more of a way to coordinate meetups and dinners amongst those fortunate enough to be in Austin.

I didn't mind it quite as much as everyone else, in fact, I kind of like seeing systems appropriated for something different. I like seeing how the developers react (I suspect friend buckets and filters are coming soon to Twitter and/or Twitterific) and I like thinking about how I would fix the problem.
