Twittering has replaced blogging. Now, instead of long sentences and paragraphs about ideas and opinions, we get info about how late you stayed up, your last shower, and how you agree with ‘what he said’.

I was unaware of Twitter until recently, when it suddenly became de rigeur for celebs to start posting their every move and random thought on the site. Now talk shows are filled with accounts of the guests Tweeting and responses to same. Funny how these new technologies creep up on us, and before we know it, everybody has an account on Twitter but you and I. Oh? You’ve had Twitter since last year? Well, it turns out that Twitter has been with us for a long time now. In fact, due to a Congressional subpoena, some very old tweeters have come to light. The following are examples that I have culled from the thousands of pages released so far…..
