Twitter certainly looses value when you follow a lot of people. They also made some early design non-choices that actually hinder its ability to serve as a platform for conversation which people often tout as being key for using Twitter.

Mostly I see this in the evolution of @replies, which was a user generated concept, and was adopted by Twitter, but never adapted, meaning that the more people involved in a conversation, the less space you have to talk since all @ref's are IN the message content, not any form of meta-data.

And when you only have 140 chars to start with...  good luck on a decent conversation :)

I have been finding life in general has periodically blocked me from watching social media... and i'm still not a 100% G+ convert. It's bending me to its will slowly however.

Thanks for posting http://velofille.com/2011/07/05/google-plus-shorter-urls-of-your-own/ +Liz ℚuilty - I don't know what I didn't think of this myself when I was wondering why G+ doesn't have URL shortening... !
Google+ is here, and its great! the only problem is passing out the link to your profile... its huge! Mine looks like this

I feel like I need a tool that'll let me simultaneously share stuff on here and on Facebook. Is that wrong?

My own ineptness it seems Liz - the UI takes a bit of getting used to!
