All this microblogging shit is giving everybody ADD

51 character title! Which I can totally Plurk/Tweet! Not!

I mean, 140 characters is more than enough for real-time news updates (The best use I've seen so far for the medium. Ingenious, actually). But honestly, if you're planning to write anything more profound than that, then one hundred and forty letters, punctuation marks and spaces combined is not going to get you anywhere near what a good rant, gush or simple musing about anything under the sun and moon can reach. There's a reason why people used to allot entire pages for diary entries, you know.

In short, nobody reaches for the sun and moon any more, content with the airy weightlessness of every hackneyed quote and insignificant detail of their lives for everyone to give their own hackneyed and insignificant comments to.

And please, do not even get me started on the karma system.

@anon#1: Thanks.

@anon#2: You're welcome to disagree, of course. It's just funny when people say things like this without backing anything up.
