I know I am supposed to be hip and down with it and all that but I'm sorry, I just .................. don't like Twitter.
Maybe it's because the "tweets" sort of resemble the lists of ingredients on the back of a TV Dinner: a few things you recognize interspersed with unintelligible whatchamacalits and hashmarks and whatnot.
Maybe it's because they're called "tweets". (This just sort of makes my skin crawl for some reason.)
Maybe because it seems that anything worth saying (Short of communications during a revolution) should be more than 140 characters long.
Maybe because Twitter just reminds me of Sarah Palin, the Palinization of our political discourse or something fancy thing like that (It would take more than 140 characters to explain, people....)
Likely, though, it's all because I'm old, or getting old. Hell, I don't text either. And my cell phone doesn't even have letters on it!
I'm sorry Twitter. I have tried to like you. Really I have. Came across this nifty list of the Best Twittering Agents and checked it out and everything. (Those of you hipper than I am should check this list out immediately.)
You and me, little bird, were just not meant to be....
