Henican: Change the world in 140 characters
Sure, they can. And soon they will be. Every day, it gets a little bit harder to tell the
social-networking Twittersphere from so-called Real Life.
Even the U.S. State Department can see the power of what is happening here.
The quickie-calls-to-arms are lurking everywhere - in nice, little chewable 140-character
bites. You never know who'll turn up next at the short-attention-span party.
Verbosity's the only one who isn't welcome here. Pick an issue, any issue
- then stand back and behold the game-changing tweets! No, Mir Hossein Mousavi (18 characters, space included) isn't the only Twitter star this week!
There's David Letterman, whose secret Twitter blast probably read something
D GovSarah Loved the "Fire Dave" rally! Lets keep the back-and-forth going for years. Working out great for both our careers!
Surely, the FBI has discovered the Joy of Tweets:
D John Robert Barnes. Sorry. DNA never lies. Ur no Steven Craig Damman.
And here's something from someone whose Twitter login is Katie 27:
D Billy60 Moving out, Grandpa? I always knew you were 2 old!
Believe me, it won't stop here. Singing stars, evil dictators, nice people too. Soon
enough, they'll all be making their marks with tweets.
Some worthy forwards:
@BarackO Happy with your current health care? Didn't think so. Single payer will heal you soon.
@KimJongMadman How'd you like your own missile launch, Hawaii? No? Here's one anyway!
@Bruno GQ really put me on the cover? They did? They did?
RT@Gays Don't ask, don't tell and don't complain either.
RT@Woody I want Carla (for my next movie).
RT@iPhone Great apps. Hope no one notices the call reception.
RT@PETA Flies are god's creatures too! Impeach Obama now.
And whatever you do, keep an eye out for this fine Twitter category:
But you knew that.
