“About a year ago I joined Twitter and recently joined Weibo, and you see the connectivity of this technology; it’s unbelievable how people communicate on it,” he said.
“They communicate in private ways and very public forums, it’s a real kind of revolution and changing force. This is all an evolution of people sending each other messages on these early computers, like the chat rooms that Donna is setting up are the great-great grandfather to Twitter, and I find that really interesting.”

“You depend on the subterfuge of the media, and now you don’t have to. You can send them a good wish or tell them something you’re interested in. If someone follows you, you can click on their page and see a little bit of what they’re about. You don’t get a total picture of someone, but you see what they’re interesting in showing, and you get to eavesdrop a bit on their life, and it’s interesting.”
