Constant Context


I have been reading folks saying that a downfall of Twitter is the constant absence of context in 140-character Tweets, and similarly short Facebook updates.

Too bad. People are there. Make it work.

Make your own context. Again and again. People have short attention spans, not just because of Twitter. People happen in on the middle of conversations, Welcome them, by offering constant context.

The lack of context in a medium is not the problem. Lack of context in the messages- that’s the problem.

By.the way- I guess the picture lacks context. Are the bottles new or empty? All from one dinner party? Who was there? Maybe there’s a story here- but I would need to frame it- with context.
