Abstract

This paper explores the way that Twitter has democratized usage and enabled non-localized proximity for users. We examine some recent changes in usages to demonstrate how public discourse, communication and information distribution affords users new ways of socializing and communicating. We also examine how Twitter has enabled individual non-technical users to communicate, collaborate and distribute information across social and geographic boundaries.
