A quick observation on how different generation use social technology differently

Me "Tweeting" to everyone in my studio. LLAP on Twitpic

This is Leonard Nimoy using Twitter. It’s from twitpic and they force this bad quality if you embed it on your blog. That said, I like this photo, but what I really like is how he and William Shatner and others of older generations tweet. For example, with this photo, he tweeted: Me “Tweeting” to everyone in my studio. LLAP. William Shatner does something similar, where they both make a tweet almost a letter or a note. (LLAP, live long and prosper, is his signoff). Leonard Nimoy has adopted the technology, but he still maintains conventions of communicating that is different than people of younger generations. You can see generation differences in how people communicate using social media, even though there is a degree of overlap forced on them by the constraints of the technology.
