Twitter is a leftist web site? I didn't know that!
However, do you agree there is a war going on - a cultural war? It's being fought on sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Do we cede the battlefield to the left and stay here in our comfort zone bitching and moaning about the war going on around us, but not willing to join the battle? Who do you think will win the war when one side has left the field?
“However, do you agree there is a war going on - a cultural war”?
Absolute agreement, It appears we may have a little disagreement on the “field of battle”.
The principle behind FB and twitter just leaves me speechless. inane attempts at one sided conversation faceless horn tooting, and the ability to say anything particularly disgusting without thinking about consequences.
I have a problem with drive through banking, much less any of the other ideas of faceless interaction/transaction I don’t do faceless banking.
I believe FR was way ahead of its time, where one can have a learning experience while engaged in faceless conversation. Twitter and FB and the other “social networking” sites IMHO bastardized the process, and began appealing to the masses as a business model using the same folks addicted (so to speak) to texting. Faceless conversation.
Yea, I’m probably showing my age, but I’m also sure there are plenty of folks of a much younger age willing to call social networking their battle field, saving me from having to consider it. Texting to me is the last ditch, low battery, personal locator for one stuck in a blizzard, with just enough signal for texting but not enough for voice reception.
