Richard Florida Tweets About Unemployment


“why I love the stripped-down, bite-sized chunks that Twitter can serve up”



You either love it or you hate it. A series of Tweets like this is why I can learn to love it. These are interesting states that I don’t need to spend 5 minutes reading a newspaper article about. There’s links, so if I want to verify or read more, it is easy. And it is easy for anyone to respond to the tweets as they come in, building a conversation around the stream of ideas.
