twitter ticker analogy

An older post from corporatewebsite.com, making a business case for enterprise usage of twitter, by Derek Abdinor.

From post:

The relation of a microblog to a blog post is often compared to the snippets of news on the ticker below the main news story on CNN or Sky TV News. Often a few pithy words is all the information you need to convey, and it does not detract from the main stories which are actually a different media.

I’m seeing this analogy more and more, and I have to say I like it.  Friday food for thought…
