Jon Fine of Business Week has found an interesting way to describe Twitter's appeal: It is ushering in a true, pure form of media for the economy, based on attention.
Fine notes that Twitter equals pure attention for those who succeed on it. That attention is the only thing Twitter can offer --- the ones creating content that gets people to come back.
A novel way of looking at it. What isn't clear is how that attention is monetized. Fine invites help on this.
