NHK ツイッター特集の慶応大と国連:NHK featuring Twitter usage at Keio University

Watch before they delete them. 削除される前にドゾ。

Keio;

As Twitter launched Japanese mobile site Thursday (the first foreign platform), Biz Stone visited Japan and NHK featured the Twitter, introducing how early adoptors (Keio University students, professors, UN staffs) are using it.

It's edited so that non-users could understand what it is. The way they spotlight the Keio student posting a minuscule thingy ("I've got a pack of oranges from my mom") to get dozens of replies in minutes may be intimidating. Also, they call it "Tsubuyaki (Tweets) services" at one point, which sounds a bit awkward.

ツイッターが海外進出第1弾で日本に木曜、モバイル対応のサイトをオープンしたそうだ。これに合わせて共同創業者ビズ・ストーン氏がイベントに来日。NHKは16日ツイッター特集を組んで慶応大学と国連の応用例を紹介した。

なんか一般の人に認知を図るっていうより、中毒者みたいな描き方な気もするが…使ってない人には、そう見えるかもねえ… 。「つぶやきサービス」って言うのだけやめてほしい。

UPDATE: Hey, another one! This one is featuring the Tokyo Meetup. No negativity. Much better.
