Twitter to replace blogging

Here is a new one that I had not heard before. A rumor seems to be going around that micro-blogging sites like Twitter will bring on the end of blogging. I hate to tell people this, but I seriously doubt that will occur so long as there are people like me out there in the online world that just love to write.

For those of you that use twitter - when is the last time you had to stop and grumble about having to spend twenty minutes trying to think of how to shorten what you wanted to say to 140 characters? Twitter is not going to end blogging, it will enhance it, allowing people to share links to longer blog posts on subjects, but Twitter will no more replace blogging than cell phone text messaging has replaced calling people.
