Twitter

I will probably never be on Twitter.  There are many reasons.

1) I refuse to do anything that is called “tweeting”.  It just sounds stupid.

2) I believe in correct spelling, capitalization, and punctuation.

3) I am far too verbose.  I am a natural born explainer.  Until the advent of telepathy, explaining is going to require words, sometimes lots of words.  I would find Twitter’s 140-word limit very, well, limiting.

Huh?  What do you mean, 140 characters?  Who would write a story with that many people in it?  How would you keep them straight?  The Lord of the Rings doesn’t have that many characters in it, and I’m still not sure that Eomer and Eowyn and Arwen are different characters.  Heck, I’ve seen the movies and read the books, and I can’t tell Merry and Pippin apart.
