It’s happening now: microblogging is booming in the US.

“So these data firmly establish that there’s a strong relationship between Twitter users and news consumption. But the chicken-and-egg question continues to gnaw at me: Is it that the real-time “newsiness”of Twitter inherently attracts news junkies, or is it that the mainstream news attention on the site is pushing more and more news consumers to get on Twitter for the first time?”

And there’s this direct link with information access.

So Brands: in this conversational world, in this “party”, bring your own booze now, bring value. It’s time.
