You know, the more the case is made for Twitter’s new retweet feature, the more I not only understand it – but also agree with it. Most things about the new functionality go to highlight the care and concerns the Twitter team considered when implementing it. Tweetie’s implementation of it on the iPhone is excellent. I also like the fact that one can selectively “turn off” the obsessive retweeters.
We “killed our TV” and replaced it with an iMac, running Plex and an EyeTV several months ago and don’t think we will ever go back. Being able to watch what we want, and only what we want, on our schedule and being able to pause and return later is life changing.
