I admit it. I don't see the purpose, relevance or value of Twitter.
The twits of the tweetering class (or Tweets of Twittering class, whatever) are not going to be my BFFs. In fact they will be the object of my continued scorn and derision. Sorry all you Senators and Congressman. Sorry all you celebs, non-celebs and adolescents who feel your every thought and deed (bundled into easy to read 140 character bites thumbed onto your cell phone) are necessary and productive.
One begins to think that apes, who also have the opposable thumb, could be taught to twitter just like they were taught to type. Only you might expect more sense from their output than what is published from twitter.
Are we so intellectually bankrupt that this is the height of modern communication?. "Jst saw Britney... She was awesome dude. Lost weight, but kept boobs."...from the office of Eric Cantor
OK, maybe a teenage girl or two needs to find out what her BFF is wearing today and what time they will be skipping class for a crack break or something, but seriously, do adults need this kind of communication lite?
