“Twitter has become like high school, where the mean kids say something hurtful to boost their self-esteem and to see if others will laugh and join in.”
Matt Lewis, writing in The Week, on why an early adopter now hates Twitter.
“MSM has become like high school, where the mean kids say something hurtful to boost their self-esteem and to see if others will laugh and join in.”
Matt Lewis should talk. He’s used his purported conservative column at DC to attack Michelle Malkin and a whole host of other conservatives and conservative ideas. Lewis is little else but another David Brooks. Said to be “conservative” but really just another soft, mushy center left idiot.
Twitter is for twits. And they have an attention span to match.
I honestly dont see the draw of things like twitter and facebook. I just dont feel the need to people I dont even know that I just had a bowel movement or my cat just jumped on the couch.
I check Facebook every so often for family stuff – but not often.
I sure don’t feel a need to constantly update the thing.
And Twitter? Nope. No draw whatsoever.
I generally use FB in lieu of a blog; when I see something interesting on the Web, I post it and leave a pithy comment. It scratches an itch. As far as Twitter, I really ignore the celebrity tweets. When I use it, I basically just use it the same way I used to use RSS aggregators.
