Editor’s note: It took three years, two months and one day for the first billion tweets to be sent on Twitter. it now takes two and a half days. Not only is this a reflection of how technology is changing but it also serves as a reminder of the exponential rise in data on the web. Clearly, maligning sense of the data is a huge challenge – something the new Twitter archive might be able to help with.
Editor’s note: #chat2lrn is a Twitter chat for learning and OD professionals that takes place every other week on a Thursday. Yesterday’s chat was on e-learning, and very interesting it was too. Prior to each chat the organisers share some links as a kind of pre-reading (they also share the tweet analysis after the chat) and yesterday’s included some useful links on elearning.
