Twitter feels like continually moving to NYC without knowing anyone whereas Facebook feels like you’re living in your hometown and hanging with everyone you went to high school with. Twitter’s we’re-all-here-in-the-moment thing… is what makes it possible for people to continually reinvent themselves on Twitter. You don’t have any of that Facebook baggage, the peer pressure from a lifetime of friends, holding you back. You are who your last dozen tweets say you are.
Jason Kottke, “Twitter is a machine for continual self-invention” (via austinkleon)
I love Twitter. I do. This explains the difference between Twitter and Facebook exactly right. ~ Janean
