Often microblogging (as twitter and jaiku) is considered a waste of time or too superficial communication. Ryan Pauls Twitter breaks down barriers in the classroom describes some of the advantages of this form of communication. The general conclusion is that:

“Although microblogging services aren’t perfect yet, users like David Parry are finding that the technology breaks down barriers and creates instant communities in unexpected environments. It also fills the void between e-mail and instant messaging, providing a quick and easy medium for asynchronous communication and general discussion.”
