Hooray for Twitter’s ‘Idle Class!’
The lurkers, the "Idle Class" of social media, are important . Just as they are in blogs. If the 90% of idles are actually reading Tweets, who’s to say they are not enriched in some way? Who’s to say they don’t pass along the conversations offline?
I say bring on the lurkers and idles! The more the better! I’m comfortable with a "90/10" rule.
