I am getting quite fond of Twitter.
At first I didn’t get it. It seemed like a mad party which I had gate-crashed, it still feels like that sometimes.
But then there are these moments of pure joy when you see the messages stacked in this glorious, random cascading shower of humanity. It reminds me of a UK Le Guin story where the problem of the timelag between the stars is cracked. Just keep on talking and eventually all the information will get through; don’t bother to wait for an answer, just keep talking.
I love the juxtapositions particularly. Just now, these two Tweets made me smile with happiness, can’t quite explain it… I’ve always wanted to know how to fold fitted sheets I guess and the Dalai Lama’s Tweets make so much sense!
Do you find knowledge comes from surprising sources these days?
