Word of the Day: Ouroborosphere

Twitter – John Battelle’s Searchblog

“I am very, very tired of the ouroborosphere’s take on Twitter. It’s time for the service to either fish or get off the pot, so to speak. And with $15mm in the door, it’s obvious which way it has to go.”

Echo chamber, reflecting pool — whatever you want to call the closed-terrarium of social media pundits that tweet and post and opine all day long about tweeting, posting, and opining — Battelle nails it best with “Ouroborosphere.”

And trolling for Yanks tickets on Twitter? That’s like looking for supermodels at a sardine cannery.

  1. I’ve used it a few times, you’re the first to comment on it, thanks David. And hey, I already got a bite on Yanks tix, though I really have no idea what I am doing there. Will be my first game….

  2. Love the term – thanks for sharing. It is a bit of a technology enabled echo chamber. What I am trying to figure out is how everyone has time to twit, blog, AND go to all the SM conferences – much less do anything else!
