Bird brain

funny-twitterIt’s pretty insulting to birds actually when you think about it.  Most birds are quite smart, that’s why I am puzzled.  How did Twitter get its name?  According to Wikipedia –
“…we came across the word ‘twitter’, and it was just perfect. The definition was ‘a short burst of inconsequential information,’ and ‘chirps from birds’. And that’s exactly what the product was.” – Jack Dorsey[20]

Well reading the tweets that clutter the “internets” (sorry George W) yes I have to agree with the definition.   There are some real beauts out there –

“keep the faith and don’t lose your gut extinct” – very moving!
“omg I just woke up and my rear is plugged – tried everything, yawning, pinching my nose… won’t unstop” – shame maybe her ear is plugged too.
“no I didn’t go to England, I went to London” – well that was Paris Hilton so what can you expect?

So with all this background do I really want to be a member of Twitterdom?  Everyone says you should – it’s part of that whole mysterious thing called Social Media.  Yes I have a Twitter account but I haven’t really used it a lot.  I am a bit of a twit when it comes to that sort of thing.  (Sorry that was awful and I should take that out but couldn’t resist it.)
