A thousand words of blah

This guy, who is super clever, as demonstrated by his ability to come up with the oh so witty name shitter, instead of Twitter, is also clearly psychic. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/peter-schwartz/microblogging-with-shitte_b_188816.html

I found this thing after @maureenjohnson linked me to a groovy list of fifty book people to follow. The author of the shitter piece drones on at length about how Twitter is worse than useless, it's actively destructive. And he scoffs at the idea of Twitter journalism.

I wonder if he issued an apology when Iran's communications were locked down following the elections and Twitter and GTalk were virtually the only way Iranians could get the word out about what was happening in their country. That might actually be an interesting read.
