Sir Timothy John “Tim” Berners-Lee, credited for inventing this little thing called the World Wide Web, has signed up for Twitter in a move that could potentially rip a hole in the time/space continuum.
The British computer scientist, engineer and MIT professor apparently got on Twitter yesterday just before he entered into a conversation with Tim O’Reilly on stage at the Web 2.0 Summit.
The man uses Tweetie and thinks either the app or the Twitter website has a confusing user interface. Since Berners-Lee is also the Director of Web standards organization World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), that’s telling.
