I don't understand Twitter.
I don't understand how an entire group of people can go from not bring able to make their own simple web page to constantly sending out announcements to people they do not know to inform them of every picayune detail of their lives.
How is this rational? What is the point of this?
I can see how people might want to be alerted by NOAA about severe weather or be advised of missing children in their area, or be notified of ... whatever they care most about. But seriously people, when everyone in a crowd carries a bullhorn, that crowd becomes a screaming mob.
Who wants to actually participate in that?
