Tired and Emotional

The Oxford English Dictionary Second Edition’s (1989) first definitions for twitter as a noun or verb are:

  • Noun: A condition of twittering or tremulous excitement (from eager desire, fear, etc.); a state of agitation; a flutter, a tremble. Now chiefly dialect.
  • Verb: Of a bird: To utter a succession of light tremulous notes; to chirp continuously with a tremulous effect.

Although I’m sure the social networking and micro-blogging website Twitter will soon come to supplant these avian-linked definitions.

What is it about Twitter that I despise? I think it’s the sheer banality of the vast majority of its output — who cares what someone else is doing ‘right now’. I don’t and anyone with a modicum of sense wouldn’t either.

If you are one of the faceless majority, neither rich or famous, then I hate to break it to you but you really don’t matter that much. If you are rich or famous then the less publicity for you the better.

The best thing to do is avoid it — and Facebook — like the plague. I have and feel so much better for it: I know my true worth.
