I can't work out if this tech column in the Bangkok Post is a joke or not. It was published yesterday and it appears to have gone in the newspaper. It's a review of Twitter. That's the same Twitter that's one of the most popular social networking sites in the world. The same Twitter that's been around since 2006. The review begins:

I've recently spent a few weeks playing around with Twitter. No doubt you've heard about it and maybe you're wondering what it's all about.

Dude, we know what it's all about.

Twitter is basically what we used to call newsgroups. A closer analogy would be a messageboard, like the ones that the folks over at thaivisa.com offer. Unlike a Newsgroup or a messageboard, your Tweet can only contain 140 characters – a few short sentences. So, not much gets said.

He ends with this:

Twitter is part of what's being defined as "Social Media". Next time, we'll look at Facebook, another part of the Social Media arena, one which I think is far more valuable.

Is the Bangkok Post stuck in a timewarp? Are we actually in a pre-coup era? Is Michael Jackson going to make a comeback?

    WELCOME TO LAST CENTURY!!!

    i never knew Bangkokpost is capable of such jokes. It made me gleeful for a while…thanks Matt :) I can't wait for his 'look at Facebook'. Maybe he will come up with something revealing and 'far more valuable', which is 'another part of Social Media arena'.
