Digg and for that matter Reddit, have become cesspools of hot air and “fanboyism”. Obviously this is merely my humble opinion on how both sites represent themselves these days, but in both cases, they do NOT reflect what’s really “happening” in a real time way like Twitter does.
Now this article takes it up a notch by indicating that its not so much the content that’s the problem for Digg, rather its ability to remain relevant in the new world of real time updates from the likes of services like Twitter.
The cold hard fact of the matter is no one outside of a select few, biased fools, have control over the content that “trends” at Digg. Simple as that. Whereas Twitter is truly, a number game, completely free of any “moderation” and control.
