This paper explores the transformation of Twitter from the traditional developer based command and control into something strangely democratic: a social (re)construction of utility, a twisting of this once unique service to serve the needs and desires, ever evolving, of its users. We explore changes in the social constructions of Twitter and use recent research in the Philosophy of Data to suggest potential explanations.
