Parker’s Just being ‘tweet

“For serious twitterers, there is additionally a commercial aspect. Building one’s base, so to speak, eventually leads to possible marketing opportunities. When one has a million subscribers to one’s thoughts, then one may have a salable asset. A penny for your thoughts potentially becomes legal tender.

What all this means in the long term is anyone’s guess. How much information can a brain usefully process? What end is served by the random tweets of countless individuals? The impulse to stay incessantly in touch can be viewed either as gregarious or as a sign of consuming anxiety. Twittering may be the opiate of the obsessively-compulsively disordered.

Who needs the couch, after all, when no thought is ever repressed?

Something to consider. Or, perchance, to tweet?”
