Christopher Stone, Twitter's co-founder

After some debate about the utility of sharing in only 140 characters, Twitter has emerged as one of most powerful social platforms.   According to some studies, people stay logged on for 12 hours addicted to the stuff being shared.

But is that healthy?  The co-founder of Twitter himself doesn’t think so.  He thinks you should get what you want and then go onto do what is important to you.


Don’t make Twitter so important that the REAL important stuff in your life becomes secondary or even worse.  But with the social media, that seems to be the real challenge in the information addicted world.  Isn’t it?

Interesting advise from the Twitter co-founder, Christopher Stone:

He said: ‘To me, that sounds unhealthy.
‘I like the kind of engagement where you go to the website and you leave because you’ve found what you are looking for or you found something very interesting and you learned something.
‘I think that’s a much healthier engagement. Obviously, we want you to come frequently.’
