Are you conscious of communicating with 56 people when you post your tweets, or who do you feel you are talking to? When I see your tweets pop up in a little box in my browser (using TwitterFox), it appears that you - or some of the other people I follow - are talking to me. In fact, thousands of people could be reading your tweets, if they happen to be looking at the stream on the main twitter site at that moment. Is this an illusion of communication, or more like hearing a familiar voice in a crowd?
