- Data represents a fact or statement of event without relation to other things.
Ex: It is raining.
- Information embodies the understanding of a relationship of some sort, possibly cause and effect.
Ex: The temperature dropped 15 degrees and then it started raining.
- Knowledge represents a pattern that connects and generally provides a high level of predictability as to what is described or what will happen next.
Ex: If the humidity is very high and the temperature drops substantially the atmosphere is often unlikely to be able to hold the moisture so it rains.
- Wisdom embodies more of an understanding of fundamental principles embodied within the knowledge and is essentially systemic.
In fairness, Miguel is correct that information received on microblogs such as Twitter, as all information sources, need to be closely examined and verified.
In summary, tweets, if used properly can augment both knowledge and wisdom.
