Stanley’s Feedback:

Is the summary covering the main points of the article? Yeah, the main points are covered. Explains twitter works, and why.

What is missing and why? I feel that you could have put something about how it changes the way we interact with each other, and learning how to do so. The whole public relations thing.

What could be removed and why? I don’t think anything should be removed.

How well written is the summary? I think it was pretty good, maybe a little more about what we do with twitter/how it affects us instead of how it works.
