For those who aren’t yet convinced of the power – or the merits of Twitter – watch this nine and a half minute clip from the February 4, 2011 episode of Grey’s Anatomy (the really good part starts around the five-minute mark). I’m not embedding it here because I don’t want to violate copyright. But here you have most people’s reactions to Twitter: initial lack of comprehension, disdain and scorn, reluctant agreement to try it, and finally, acceptance, information and knowledge sharing. Since Grey’s Anatomy is a medical show, that knowledge sharing leads not only to collaboration but to lives saved. And yes, it is a TV show, not real life.
Sorry about the subtitles, but English audio’s still available. Please let me know if the link stops working.
