Term shorter than “microblog” as generic equivalent of “tweet”
I had this issue for a very long time. Firstly I feel it is wrong to brand tweet as microblog. I feel it was more a convenience, during the initial stages of Twitter, to relate these short messages with something popular, and hence got associated with blogging. My personal opinion is that both tweet and blog serve different purposes, and should be taken differently. Hence I would not use microblog for tweet and vice versa.
