  1. Twitter makes my brain hurt. I’m not convinced that summarizing our collective experience in 140-character segments makes our world a better place. But maybe I’m just an oldster.

  2. It’s all about selecting interesting people to follow. Andbeing able to read it on your phone. The web browser interface is worthless.
