I’ve been trying for months to explain to a few friends why I have no interest in becoming a twitterer. Frankly, the whole craze smacks of pandemic egocentrism.
More to the point, I can’t think of a single person on planet earth whose thoughts and activities I’d want to know about 24/7. Nor can I think of anyone with whom I’d even consider sharing my thoughts and activities so comprehensively (or is that compulsively?).
But I finally came upon a cartoon that partially explains my aversion in a manner these fad-obsessed twitterers might appreciate.
