This one is filed under Tech vs Life. The clue’s in the name…. twit.
Twitter is a symptom of our “need to be famous/gotta watch the celebrities” society. People actually think that what their doing is interesting/worthwhile and worth sharing with the world. It wouldn’t be so bad if these boring people actually posted worthwhile stuff but its all “I’m having a burger”. Sorry, I don’t care how funny or famous you are, the boring bits of your life are just as boring as the boring bits of my life.
The only person in history who should ever have been on Twitter is Albert Einstein. At least he could say something worthwhile in 140 characters – not that he would have come up with E = mc2 if he was busy tweeting. The rest of you? Go do something creative or worthwhile.
