Hugh Laurie on the Twitter phenomenon: "As I look around my friends' tweets I see banality on all sides. I don't understand the purpose of it. [...] I think if people were able to take these 140 characters (allowed in each post) and develop a poetic Western form - a haiku of our own in which all human existence could be compressed into those 140 characters - that would be a satisfying thing, but that's not what I see when I read them."
I don't "tweet" for this very reason. My "tweets" would read something like this:
"Didn't do laundry, have nothing to wear / But on Fridays I just don't care. / Coffee on skirt on the way to work, / God, some days I feel like a jerk."
I really don't see how this fad holds interest for anyone. My advice for the tweeters out there: don't write if you have nothing to say.
