Twitter Me a River

Interesting thoughts from Yves Smith over at Naked Capitalism regarding Twitter and the compression of communication and thought, and some social implications that should give all pause. Yves seems sadly resigned to it. (Hat tip: andrewsullivan.com)

I just joined Facebook and that's enough for me to keep in touch with those I can't see often; Twitter looks kind of exhausting. Do people need to be THAT connected? I don't even keep my cell phone on because I don't always want to be found! :)

I heard a whole thing on Twitter on NPR. It sounds like it's everyone's personal reality show only everyone's moment-to-moment existence is really not that interesting!
