Here’s an email I received from a friend who works in Web promotion, in response to the sentiments expressed in my last post about finally succumbing to Twitter. He’s on point, and I’m just glad I’m not the dude he describes in the first graf (right? fellas?):
“All this social networking is annoying because most people don’t have shit to say. They have no draw, no product, no expertise in anything, they aren’t funny, they offer no insight and no one cares about their stupid lives. They’re yelling into the void and hoping that if they yell loud enough and often enough someone will pay attention. People try to offer themselves as the draw but if their personality were that magnetic they probably wouldn’t be spending so much time on the Internet in the first place.
