Twitter time

I found Annalee Newitz’s article on Twitter fascinating, including this breakdown of time:

  • Twitter time: every minute
  • Blog time: every few hours
  • Newspaper time: every day

There’s also a mention of “book time” in the one-line bio at the end of the piece, which I suppose one could translate in to meaning “every few days”, given how long the average person devotes to getting through a tome.

I also thought about how one might define the 24-hour news cycle. Would “CNN time” be defined as “every second”?
