Media Continue to Try and Explain Weird Web Site That ‘Tweets’

'Blake Rutherford. Uses Twitter.'

'Blake Rutherford. Uses Twitter.'

Here’s Blake Rutherford of the Think Tank, Twittering away somewhere he virtually never goes, the state Capitol!

It’s all part of this piece last night on local NBC affiliate KARK-TV, Channel 4 — the latest attempting to explain Twitter to baffled luddites everywhere. No one knows exactly what Twitter is for, but everyone is doing it! Including KARK, which has set up its own Twitter account here.

Also featured: uber-Web savvy solon Steve Harrelson, who claims an addiction that scares even us. And then there’s lots of shots of people tapping away on their iPhones and Blackberrys. What are they doing? They’re Twittering of course!

And it’s all so simple. Except when you try explaining Twitter to your mom. Or anyone not in the media.

Meanwhile, you Twitterholics can follow me @LT. Look for others to follow in our Arkansas Twitter Guide.
