Reasons I completely dislike Twitter:

  • It reminds me of the word “twit.”
  • It has all of the panache and weight of a Cliff Notes book.
  • It exudes a lack of confidence in the permanence of our experiences.
  • It smells like teen spirit.
  • It takes the place of blogs, which are now the more-thoughtful electronic communication tool, which, in turn, is hard to believe.
  • It creates a kind of enforcement of followers.
  • It further glamorizes celebrity at the risk of shunning important content.
  • It places urgency above explication.
  • It creates new demands on our mental space, which is increasingly limited by the detrititus of impoverished, short-term thinking.
  • It is cute.
