it does, doesn't it? I mean, I use it in a very limited way as a sort of a news aggregator - if I come across someone interesting at a conference or whatever I follow them. I never post anything. But my library service's Twitter feed is impossible to follow - we follow thousands of folks and thousands of folks follow us, so even if you use Tweetdeck (as I do) it's impossible to keep track of even a tiny percentage of the folks you are following. It works great if you follow a handful of Twitter blowhards like Stephen Fry or Jack Monroe, but as a means of sharing useful information it fails miserably IMO.
And The Hodge is still very much in evidence - his latest book landed in my library only last week... as to whether he's a charlatan, ruthlessly wringing the last out of what was once his USP? I couldn't possibly say.
