the pursuit of quality in a fleeting life

don’t be a twit

The recent Twitter craze has definitely got me thinking about how the government is slowly tapping into the daily activities of each and every participating constituent.  As silly as it may seem, we have embarked on an age where not only are our phones are being tapped, our text messages scrutinized, our movements recorded, but now, our “tweets” are informing the “Big Brothers” of every minute, insignificant action or inaction that we partake in.  As conspiratorial as it may seem, I will reserve my “tweets” for those who actually have an interest in my life.

Or am I just bitter that each and every minute is not significant enough to document in 140 characters or less?
