Today, I read the Wikipedia article on Twitter. The last sentence gave me something to chew on. It said that Twitter had been “satirized…as an addiction to ‘constant self-affirmation’ and said tweets were nothing more than ‘shouts into the darkness hoping someone is listening.’ ”
Of course, I proceeded to then tweet about it:
It’s been said that tweets are “shouts into the darkness hoping someone is listening.” What do you think?
While I am mostly waiting to hear other people’s responses, these are a few other questions/thoughts I have on the matter:
Since when is it wrong to hope?
Since when is it wrong to be heard?
Since when is it wrong to shout into the darkness in a belief that we’re not alone?
What do you think?
