Robin Rendle · Call Me Interactivity
"We are all tempted by inter­ac­tiv­ity; video & audio snip­pets, data charts that can be flicked and pushed, let­ters that can be popped & pinched. But how many of these fea­tures enhance the rela­tion­ship between reader and writer? Due to the con­straints I men­tioned pre­vi­ously, we most likely won’t recog­nise the dig­i­tal book in a decade. This is because they won’t be built in the same way, they won’t be writ­ten in the same way & they won’t be funded & pub­lished in the same way either. These prob­lems, some eco­nomic, some tech­ni­cal, will force us to con­sider alter­na­tive meth­ods of think­ing about con­tent, space, sto­ry­telling & time.

What do you do when the retweets start and people correct you, and then people react to the reactions even though you deleted it right away?

It is extremely difficult to catch up with a bad tweet. One mistake, and you’re that guy that disses women in tech, hates his clients or tortures chihuahuas, and then a campaign starts against you — an evil sinner that needs to be brought to justice by the social media avengers. An error on Twitter can easily turn into twitterror.

Bad luck? Pay more attention? Humans make mistakes. Some mistakes happen in good faith. No one knows everything, and no one is so considerate they can avoid ever hurting anyone.

That errors get spotted and corrected quickly is one reason why I like Twitter…"
