To the extent that Twitter is offering news consumers of all kinds access to the information they want — regardless of whether that information consists of “user-generated content” or links to other media outlets — it is a competitor. And to the extent that it can offer better curation or aggregation or filtering or targeting of that content, it will win.

Here’s the study I had mentioned in class today. Research found top posting times for the best possible engagement. These are the details from Poynter.
My take? Post something around 3pm. You should see some serious engagement. My other take? Don’t use Tumblr until after the kids are in bed.

8 Crazy Things IBM Scientists Have Learned Studying Twitter
A team of IBM researchers spends their days sifting through Twitter.  They use live streams of tweets to develop machines that are smarter  than the typical computer, an area of study known as “machine learning.” 
Using these tweets, they’ve developed technology that allows a  machine to understand that some tweets are just background noise and  others are newsworthy and important.
