Twitter is cultural graffiti. In other words, don’t dismiss it, even when folks tweet about the sweet potato pancakes they had for breakfast. And if you do dismiss Twitter, please conjure up another adjective besides narcissistic.

  1. I think that's a helpful perspective. Though there's not much of a learning curve on Twitter, there's an adaptation curve. “What will this give me and how will I contribute?” is an evolutionary process. And there's always the charitable response to fall back on. If someone I follow tweets “Can't decide whether to walk or bike today,” well, Rainwater+Duck's back = move along. It cost me about 8 nanoseconds of my time unless I allow it to distract or irritate me.
