As noted at Telegraph on Friday, February 24, 2012, Biz Stone attended a conference in Montreal, Canada on Wednesday and advised Twitter users not to use the 140-character micro-blogging site for long hours.

“To me, that sounds unhealthy.” Stone was quoted as saying, noting that the Twitter users should leave the site once they found what they need and do something else.

“I like the kind of engagement where you go to the website and you leave because you’ve found what you are looking for or you found something very interesting and you learned something.” Stone added.

“I think that’s a much healthier engagement. Obviously, we want you to come frequently.” The 37-year old Twitter co-founder explained, with reports saying some users spend as much as 12 hours on the site.

Apparently, Mr. Stone also said on the Montreal Board of Trade conference that many thought that Twitter, which is now believed to have 500 million users worldwide, will not succeed saying that it will not be that useful to mankind.
