Here’s something the snarkmatrix might be interested in. Talking about Twitter, and why I think it’s wonderful, I made this assessment (part of the link above):
Twitter makes me stop and think about language more frequently and more deeply than any other technology in the world.
A little over-the-top maybe, and definitely untrue if you want to be pedantic and call writing itself a technology, etc. But! As I thought about it, I realized there was an essential truth to the statement. Nowhere do I ponder creative sentence construction and word choice more than inside the little box with the 140-character limit.
Snarkmarket blogging will be unaffected. And! It seems apropos to mention it: You can follow @snarkmarket on Twitter, too. It’s entirely redundant if you’re subscribed to the feed, but I know some people who like to track their favorites (ahem) over there, too.
