There’s something intriguing about wandering anonymously through the day, going wherever you want, doing whatever you want — no questions asked, no calls from the office.
Too bad that rarely happens anymore.
Thanks to social networks like Twitter, a worldwide broadcast of your every move and mood is just 140-characters away. We've come a long way since 2008, when many of today's most tweet-happy users (myself included) complained about their fears of being followed and argued that the minutia of someone else's life isn’t interesting enough to distract their attention.
Nope, we've learned that Twitter really is the gateway to deeper, more meaningful communication — and allows people to more deeply connect, share resources, share online opportunities and collaborate.
And now researchers at the University of Missouri claim they've found a way to make Twitter even more useful for those who believe there's actually a lot of treasure in those tweets.
