From WIRED – Mob Rule! How Users Took Over Twitter

Read this article in the print version (!) of WIRED. Excellent article about how Twitter’s creators deliberately let users define a medium and technology with great results. My favorite quote that sums up the article:

“Essentially, Twitter left a ball and a stick in a field and lurked on the sidelines as its users invented baseball.”
