Looks like that Wildeism has been dragged unceremoniously into the twenty-first century:
There are two stories out there this week about bloggers getting blocked from someone else's Twitter feed: TBogg was blocked from Michelle Malkin's feed, and Adam Serwer at The American Prospect was blocked from ABC's Jake Tapper's feed.
I can't get it out of my head: These are less-than-140 word bursts, invariable off the top of the author's head--and they typed them with their thumbs! And it's news that someone was cut off from a steady diet of this?
As John at Americablog observed:
Coulda been worse. They could have not cared about being banned.
Because apparently the only thing worse than being tweeted at is not being tweeted at.
Finally: A medium has come along to make blogging seem respectable--even stodgy. How long until Twitter is replaced by something even sillier--like subscribing to the real-time charting of one another's blood pressure or rectal temperature? (I shudder to think of what it will be called instead of "tweeting.")
