the thing is always on

TechCrunch post about twitter omnipresence.

From ‘Steel’ in comments:

Fads come and go. Social Networks will be to the web like the Hula Hoop is in a local Walmart. People look and remark how much fun they remember having with the toy, but don’t buy into it again. Twitter will twitter out because it is more than just a waste of time; it’s useless. At least with the Hula Hoop, people got some exercise from it.

Cynicism aside, is Steel right?  Or is there gold in them thar hills?
