Submission + - Are human beings wired to tweet? (communications.uvic.ca)

natcap writes: http://www.cbc.ca/spark/ reports: "Are human beings wired to tweet? Tweets and status updates – those short burst of information, tiny lines about what we are doing, or what our kid said, or how happy we are it’s Friday – is it something innately human in us? Genevieve von Petzinger's research suggests that tens of thousands of years ago, our cave-dwelling ancestors may have had the same impulse. The squiggles left by those early humans may have been a kind of status message, or proto-tweet."
