Although everywhere I turn people want to tell me about how mainstream Twitter use has become, I still beg to differ. While some really neat business applications have been uncovered, it’s still kind of like a hurricane or Swine Flu: getting all of the headlines because it’s such great media fodder. The question becomes, what happens to Twitter when it drops from the headlines and people are no longer interested in Ashton Kutcher? Will it ever reach the adoption rates of say blogging? Will the CDC be able to hold the attention of the 6000+ followers currently signing up by the hour to follow H1N1?
