Twitter is a newsroom. Breaking news is one imagined emergency after another, from around the world, delivered to your unprepared brain.
Twitter is a mob. A mob of angry and confused people, who destroy targets with no individual feeling responsibility for the killing blow.
Twitter is a school. The most spiritual, scientific, and literary minds on the planet freely share their distilled works. And every fool shouts over them.
Twitter is a network. It connects people based on their ideas rather than on their pre-existing relationships.
Twitter is a microphone. It makes instant celebrities of each of us, with retweet fame and follower fans. Celebrities may be the unhappiest people in the world.
Twitter is online society. To survive it, the individual must ignore the news, leave the mobs, disassociate from the angry and the confused, and dismiss both compliments and insults.
