Siento no recordar la fuente de este “poema” en cuanto lo encuentre lo pongo.

Twittering is interruptive.
Blogging is a destination.
Both users should remember that.

Twittering is often too short to say enough.
Blogging is often too long to keep one’s attention.
Both reward skillful writing and thoughtful argument.

Twittering is easy and thus sometimes ill-considered.
Blogging is hard and seems more substantial.
Both can contradict this.

Twittering is less likely to involve click-through.
Blogging is all about the click-through.
Both are abused for this reason.

Twittering is prone to devolve to one to one exchanges.
Blogging is more likely to generate multi-partite conversation.
Both are ultimately a “one to many” medium.

Twittering is read once and forgotten.
Blogging is read often and forgotten.
Both are still worthwhile.

Twittering is personal revelation.
Blogging is personal reputation.
Both will flourish.
