Twitter: The Jokes Outweigh The Raves

They say that any publicity is good publicity. If that is true, then Twitter is experiencing a glut of good times. It seems, though, that the overabundance of coverage is poking fun at it rather than championing it. The difficult nature of defining Twitter's value proposition is the springboard to all of the derisive spoofing. I wonder if this will hurt it in the long run. The more that Tweeting becomes the butt of jokes, the less that some will want to become part of the laughingstock. If iPods lost 90% of their cool factor, would they be as successful?
