Micro-blogging app Twitter yields short, sweat, frequent behind the scenes goss for music fans for the MTV Video Music awards

Funnily enough I had just finished reading an article by Clive Thompson in July Wired called “This Just In: I’m Twittering – How a social network app turns trivial updates into your posse’s sixth sense”
Clive Thompson likens twitter relationships to a type of “social proprioception” where a procpriception is “your body’s ability to know where your limbs are“…leading to physical coordination
He claims that “Twitter and other constant – contact media create social proprioception. They give a people a sense of itself making possible wierd, fascinating feats of coordination. ….
A buddy list isn’t just a vehicle to chat with friends but a way to sense their presence. Are they available to talk? Have they been away?”
which he likens to ESP.
