Twiter Sixth Sense?

Clive Thompson on How Twitter Creates a Social Sixth Sense

An interesting look at twitter and it's ability to provide a sort of social sixth sense.

I'm not entirely sure that such a "sixth sense" is always a good thing. For somethings like knowing when people are busy, and have other stuff to do sure, but at other times it seems like such a system would leave people feeling like though know about every thing that's happening to you. Thus leaving you with nothing to actually talk about when you meet in person. I guess this is quite dependent on what level of detail you but into your twitter posts.

What do you people think?
