The definition of “new” (now) is being changed by twitter

With increased update cycle, blog posts once changed the definition of “new”(or “now”) that we had used to with the traditional media, broadcast or print. I think now is the time to re-define “new” (or “now”) again with twitter, which allows only 140 characters per twit(ter)  but with an amazingly higher update cycle than any other existing publishing tool. Wonder if Google or Technorati is going to capture this whole data set (say, every 5 minutes? And wonder if it is any meaningful at all?).

Being spontaneous, I bet, the quality of each twit(ter)  is so low. Yet I think we should embrace that spontaneity at the cost of quality, just like we did so with blog posts to traditional media. Besides, I have the feeling we have so many blogs posts that are essentially redundant including mine; we should often be able to boil down what we are going to blog post to a twit(ter) of less than 140 characters.

Obviously it is about the trade-off between Spontaneity and Time-To-Edit (hence, Cost of editorial).

Amazingly enough I searched “twitter search” and found, among many, this thing called twittersearch. WOW, Really amazing!

Update: Incidentally, thanks asyuu for pointing me at mybloglog blog; mybloglog is now being integrated with twitter account but so far I can not figure out how. I did myself somewhat similar a couple days ago instead by placing my mybloglog URL in twitter homepage section and my twitter URL in mybloglog homepage section in the hope of visitors being cross-referenced.

Update2: Just found the blog post by Andrew Parker where he believes many blog posts can be a twitter post less than 140 characters. I totally agree.
