Touch choice, I would say. As it is sometimes described as "SMS of the
Internet", both `net-im' and `www' seem to be appropriate categories.
Twitter might be viewed as some Web-2.0'ish mix of IRC+ICQ+SMS, which
kinda votes for `net-im', but recently lots of new sites started to use
Twitter to collect people's opinions on #sometopic, which IMHO makes it
more of webblog/commentary instrument of the Web, thus asking for `www'
category (of course, we are still talking about short and instant
messages, so `net-im' still makes sense). I'm, frankly, not quite sure
myself. I've CCed ports@ to see what other people have to say, I hope
you don't mind.
