Recently I saw a cover of magazine, I can’t remember what it was. I only noticed the cover and headline, a dying blue bird, under it was “Twitter to big to succeed” Or some thing like that. I thought how weird. If twitter shuts down, what would popular culture do? Twitter is unique in that it give a limited amount of space, to express yourself. No metaphors, similes just get to the point. “I hate this bus, my boss, my life etc”. Hash-tags hates bus, boss, life.
Everyone has a twitter account, poets, writers, mothers and politicians etc. etc. etc. You can’t promote a book, movie, off or on Broadway play w/o it. Everyone’s spelling is going to hell in 140 spaces or less. In almost every language available. Sometimes it is overwhelmingly disgusting.
I never thought I would join but a quick blog is sometimes just what I need. I didn’t care if I was read of not. I put together the right combination of words and create the perfect sentence. It does not happen often. But when it does, people marvel at it.
I didn’t read the article. However I don’t think the blue bird will die. Other places seeing the fun of it are taking up the slack and stranglers or at least trying to.
