Don’t get Twitter? You must be old
“Admitting you don’t “get” Twitter is like admitting you can’t hear those specialized ring tones only audible to the young… That you’re no cooler than your parents complaining about “the rap music.””
You’re probably a “war-torn veteran of Web 1.0,” reduced to sneering at “un-jaded Generation Y with anticipatory schadenfreude and jealousy.” Uh oh, where do I sign up?
I’ve likened Twitter in the past to catnip for tech bloggers – for some unexplained reason, they just can’t get enough of it. Helen calls it the Paris Hiltoning of America: “Twitter is always on, always looked at, and at a 140 character limit, doesn’t have the capacity to be either deep or meaningful.”
