“It seems like Twittering is just

randomly bragging

about your

unexceptional life.”

“NOW you’re getting it!”

I had this whole bit about how I am, by nature, an over-sharer, and how if anyone would be all up in Twitter it should be me, but how nevertheless I find its use by most people baffling and without any logical purpose or redeeming qualities (aside from feeding my stalker tendencies)—but really, the quote at the top, drawn from a great video on Current, sorta sums it all up. So, yeah.

(P.S. I first saw this video on Current over a month ago, and in the mean time Twitter has become even more pervasive and used by even more people and in more venues than perhaps anticipated, so maybe it will feel dated by now. But if you too are waiting for Twitter to jump the shark, check out the sequel!)
