Chances are, if you are reading this paper, you have a Twitter account or you know someone who has one. As of April 2010, “Twitter was reported to have more than 200 million users sending an average of 110 million tweets per day, with nearly 60% of users active on the site daily” (Pasternack, 2010. Twitter is a microblogging platform that allows you to post brief status updates from your phone, computer or other mobile device. The updates, called “tweets,” can be no longer than 140 characters. The service has not only enhanced communication and connections between people but also created a new form of social networking. Through Twitter, you can be connected to the world in an instant.
The microblogging platform has changed how we live life. It is constantly being integrated into our lives through the use of third-party applications such as Foursquare and Facebook Places. These applications allow you to check into locations automatically via your GPS location system and then automatically update your Twitter status with the locations that you check into. By doing so, you become readily available to your friends to see where you are and what you are up to at any given time. This is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family; however, it also gives you an up-to-the-minute view of their whereabouts and their activities. The constant stream of updates can lead to a feeling of being over-connected and overwhelmed. Integration of Basin and Twitter could help alleviate some of this stress for users and provide them with a less stressful way to keep up with their friends.
Many people have argued that integration of Basin and Twitter would not be a good thing. They believe that integration would take away from the value of each platform. In the case of Basin, users are “used to the simple text-based interface and don't want anything distracting them from what's important” (Shaw, 2010. People enjoy the simplicity of Basin because it won't distract them from what they really want to talk about. Others have said that integrating these two platforms would actually make things harder for people who are already accustomed to using both platforms by adding several steps to their process (Shaw, 2010.
Integrating Basin and Twitter would provide users with many benefits. One benefit would be that one platform wouldn't have to be used to get updates from various people. Instead, all of the updates from friends on different platforms would be gathered in one place and easily organized into one timeline (Shaw, 2010. This would allow users to get the most updated information without having to go to multiple places or applications to find it. Another benefit is that users wouldn't have to worry about updating both platforms at once or at least not as often. With integration, they could just update one account and their updates would be posted on the other automatically (Shaw, 2010. Additionally, there is the benefit of privacy. Users on both platforms can control who gets access to their updates and can choose not to share certain information with everyone (Shaw, 2010. If these platforms were integrated, users wouldn't have to worry about this type of privacy concern because all of their updates would automatically be shared with everyone who follows them on either platform.
Through integration, people would be able to get the newest and most updated information from their friends regardless of what platform they are using. It would also save people time from having to check multiple places for information and would remove any privacy concerns about sharing certain information with everyone. Many people still disagree that this integration should occur; however, after careful consideration, it seems clear that integration would provide a better experience for users.
