Well Stu, I could sweeten the words but the message stays the same.
In no way Twitter is justified. Not as a news platform and certainly not for all the people that have an urge to share their opinion with the public.
People who do so, are really low on self esteem that they have this need. Almost this fetish to have to share all their @#$%&.
And no, it's not in any way a "modern way of communicating". It is retarded because communicating takes more than just blabbing brain farts and 140 characters.
