  • Twitterature is one of the most pathetic and tragic and unoriginal publications of all time. It completely and utterly undermines the beauty of classical literature in every way, by changing the rich language into shallow and meaningless 'tweets' dotted with obscene words and phrases that can singularly destroy the personality of a character.

    God only knows the purpose of this book, considering that it not only tells thousand-page works of art with a few characters, but also destroys vital character developments and gorgeous descriptions. It ruins the endings of the books and consequentially, people would be less inclined to read the original. Sure Twitterature is meant to be 'humourous' but it's just not funny to see such great literary works demoted to 140 character blots.

    I could go on, but I won't. I'm getting sick just thinking about it.

  • The best argument against democracy is a five minute talk with the average Tweeter", to paraphrase a quote often attributed to Winston Churchill. The quotation implies that the average Tweeter is not-too-well informed on the issues that matter to society.

    The saying (substituting "voter" for "Tweeter") is recorded in print since at least 1992.

    But there are Wordies and Wordniks that Twitter... me included.

  • Twitter itself isn't so bad as long as it's not overused. I just cannot stand converting classics into tweets.
