Advice from Biz Stone: Don’t spend hours tweeting

Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, has some advice for the site’s millions of users: Don’t spend hours tweeting.

Stone reportedly said that on Wednesday at a meeting with the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, according to this story by David Batty of the Guardian. Batty wrote:

Biz Stone, Twitter’s creative director, said users should visit the site for information but leave once they had found it.

At a business conference in Montreal, Canada, Stone, 37, said that using Twitter for hours at a time “sounds unhealthy”.

"I like the kind of engagement where you go to the website and you leave because you’ve found what you are looking for or you found something very interesting and you learned something," he told the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal on Wednesday.

What do you think about this suggestion? Is it too late for all the twitterholics out there or is this something you’ll take into consideration?
