Comments: Harvard Business: "New Twitter Research: Men Follow Men and Nobody Tweets"

My favorite thing about all this is that TechCrunch always reports the most vapid, trivial non-stories about anything tangentially related to Twitter.

Well, until this article showing that there really aren't that many people actually using Twitter. TechCrunch doesn't seem to want to touch this one with a ten foot pole.

Interesting that you're putting the likelyhood that men will follow men down to Bigheadness specifically rather than sexism in general. That men, when provided with an open platform, still ignore women's voices isn't surprising, merely depressing.

(also, I've a feeling the blogosphere's female Bigheads might find Twitter less appealing than the male Bigheads do, as the female Bigheads don't want to have the attention of a large and worshipful audience so much as to have a mass conversation which they dominate, I think).

As usual, I think an honest non-profit could and should bury them! People wouldn't put up with all the non-sense (ego stroking and more or less obvious commercial efforts), waste of time and resources if a true neutral grounds platform for conversation existed.
