    Re-Tweeting is cool. Bit like DJing.

    Like everything , it depends what one uses it for ...
    In revolutions, with old mullahs cutting off cell phones and texting and media corp coverage - it might prove useful.

    I love how the sort of spontaneous unmeditated nature of "tweeting" (especially if you do it via cell phone) is exposing the lurking psychopathic narcissm and desperate existences of certain celebrities.

    I recommend popular singer John Mayer's twitter page. Actually here is some of the best bits.

    Hey, it's weird. Know what else is? Two homes. Millions of fans. Getting to be an artist for life. I think I'll jump on the treadmill.
    Ryokan - a traditional japanese hotel. Paper doors. Tatami mats. Garden. Rain. Thunder. Miles Davis. Scotch. Notebook. Soul on 10.
    I love how some dudes hate me for dating their fantasy girl, as if they were going to if I hadn't.
    So you see, though filled with deep emotional voids that can never be filled, Showbiz Types are an important part of our Nation's tapestry.

    Shaq's is good too, but only because it is yet another conduit for Shaq's greatness.

    ha-ha!

    that Mayer one is priceless.

    mind you he strikes me as not the nicest fellow, didn't he treat Aniston pretty shabbily by most accounts?

    i got on Twitter yesterday purely re Iran (i am under no illusions about a 'twitter revolution' obviously).

    i appreciate some people who have e.g. emotional issues might find Twitter a worthy foil to put down seemingly mundane observations that are in fact a conduit/cathartic cover of sorts, for far more serious matters, and i appreciate it's good for musicians, DJs etc (in fact i'm now following Zhao ), but in general i can also see why there is the cynicism.

    Blogger and Wordpress etc allow far longer pieces so, analysis, teased-out views, not just the 140 character limit, and at least tumblr allows you to embed photographs and such.

    Default 140 chars or less

    but all my misgivings cited, i must come down in favour of it.

    absurdly inappropriate analogy but Sappho conveyed a lot through near-silence, and Dickinson conveyed a lot through not much more.

    OK i can't believe i just (sorta) compared Emily Dickinson to John Mayer: i'll get my coat..
