I am watching "maicih" twitter account. Interesting.
Here's an example of an Indonesian entrepreneur, selling hot (potato?) chips, using twitter. The chips are popular and very hot. They scales to measure the hotness.
They have moving vehicles (cars) and selling those hot popular chips in various streets in Bandung (and now other cities). If you want to buy their chips, all you have to do is look at (or follow) their twitter account. You'll know where they are.
As for me, the chips are to hot for my stomach. I'll pass.
I hate retweet (RT). There are occasions that retweet is okay, but most of the time they are not.
Google plus makes it easier for people to re-share posting. This is re-tweet in a grander scale! So now, I have the same video clip posted 10 times (or more) in my stream. They take up a lot of screen space.
After using Google plus (g+) for a while, I think I am still going to tweet (or whatever g+ equivalent) more in twitter. My reason is very simple; I need statistics of my activities. In twitter, I know the number of tweets I have made and so on. I know if I talk too much (the ratio of #tweets/#follower is much higher - a metric I invented ha ha ha).
There's no such feedback (karma of some sort) in google+. Even 4square has badges. I need that kind of feedback.
There has been a new development in tech start-up companies in Indonesia. Online media companies are taken by big companies. The recent take over is detik.com by Chairul Tanjung. Wow! (Some people think that this might be related to politics; as preparation of Indonesian election. Electronic media is important in Indonesia!)
