NPR Story Features Folksonomy

Andy Carvin's "In Iran, The Revolution Will Be Tagged" is an interesting article that touches on how folksonomies are used in Twitter.  It is an interesting article which definitely needs expanding upon.  Librarians have been talking about it for years. 

Is the general public really starting to use it?  The case of Twitter user population is too small.  Just writing aloud here, and I'm thinking that I might form a thesis for an ARLIS/NA paper (I've got to check out Sherman Clarke's & other librarian's work too).
