How fun would I be if I weren’t able to poke fun at myself? Yeah, i would be VERY boring. Since the image I am going to link to is probably copyrighted, I won’t lift it off of the site. Instead, I will kindly ask you that you go and read the card and then come back. Done? Cool 🙂

Mostly, I take Twitter as a conversation tool with my fellow blogging friends. But I frequently joke on Twitter that I am “Twitter spam” and that this may be the reason why some people ‘unfollow’ me (actually I’m pretty certain that’s not the reason, but it’s always fun to say it). The someecards are always fun, sarcastic and give me a chance to say things I would like to say but sometimes don’t know how to say.

They need constant stimulation in the form of a constant flow of updates to feel in the game. RSS feeds don’t update frequently enough, so bloggers came up with a mechanism to be pinged every 5 minutes.
Will the future of human communication be reduced to high frequency 5 words sentences instead of 3 paragraphs of well thought content once a day?
