Does Anyone Really Use Twitter for Engagement?

From Slate:

“Hardly anyone holds actual conversations on Twitter. At least, that’s true in my timeline, which is full of techies, academics, journalists, politicians, and comedians, self-appointed or otherwise. Everyone’s too busy barking into their own megaphones to respond to anyone else. Either that, or they’re lurking passively in the faceless crowd, piping up only via the occasional timid retweet or favorite of someone else’s reverberating bark.”
