How is twitter different than RSS?

Twitter is RSS.

After playing with twitter for a few weeks, I’ve decided that twitter is “human RSS”. I login to twitter, and do the exact same thing I do in my RSS reader.  I scan articles, links, and snippets, and open them in tabs if they look interesting. Signal to noise is kind of higher than RSS, with many people saying many things I don’t care about. But I get that in RSS as well (just not as high).

What do you think?
