If you are asked to define internet in one platform, what would it be? Is twitter or Google?
It is not a simple question to answer though. People who browse internet use Google day to day. It is almost mean the same when we say “Searching on the internet” and “Searching on Google”. Google is way beyond searching.
But I need to go one step forward. Twitter in the other hand is not “140 characters of inanity” as some people say. But it is a place where I get every piece of information from individuals.
Do I need information from human or machine?
