Tweeting vs. blogging

I think it would be interesting to study the impact of tweeting on blog postings. I know my postings have tailed off since I started posting to Twitter. I now put out half formed thoughts in a moment, versus putting a bit more thought to it and writing a few more words. Does one replace the other?

This seems intuitive, but I haven't seen any data on it. There seem to be more than enough people out there excited to take shots at blogs and Twitter (particularly Twitter) whenever they can. You'd think one of them would be all over this.

I still haven't bought into Twitter. But I haven't stopped yet, even after a couple of months, so clearly there's something in it for me.
