Twouble with Twitter: funny video!!

I just stumbled across this video yesterday about Twitter, check it out it's pretty funny!!

If you listen to everything he's saying it's so true, and quite clever! I like when the big whale comes in after that guy upsets everyone in Twitter (if you're not familiar with Twitter, it's the whale that appears when Twitter's down or is having technical troubles).

I also especially like how he says that "we now communicate in bite-sized yippity yaps!" It is true, most of us do not call our friends to make plans, we are either texting them or sending MSN and Facebook message. The article I thought this related to was by Nancy Miller on wired magazine. The link is below, but she just talked about how we consume popular culture in little bite sized snacks, and coined the term snack culture. http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/15.03/snackminifesto.html

  1. What a video, loved it. I have always been somewhat of a skeptic of twitter and perhaps even facebook and this youtube video hits it right on the nail. I really enjoyed the part about just calling your friends instead of using twitter. I have been saying this for years now even in relation to text messages. I like talking to my friends over the phone or face-to-face not over twitter and facebook, where relationships become fake for me. How hard is it to call a friend? not that hard.

    anyways awesome video
