Are you suffering from Tweetnesia?
Laura (AKA Pistachio) and I just experienced something I think you Twitter users will appreciate. I had sent her a direct message (DM) earlier about something. She replied later, but I wasn’t sure what it was in reference to specifically. I tend to Twitter quite a bit, so I can easily forget about a particular tweet. With the 140 character limitation a reply (public or private) can often not include what it was in reference too due to space. So confusion sets in.
Pistachio coined it perfectly: Tweetnesia. It’s a form of Twitter induced amnesia which can set in seconds after you hit the update button.
Has this every happened to you? Perhaps Jeff Sass needs to incorporate this syndrome on his blog, Social Networking Rehab.
