In the News A few months ago, I wrote an article about comments, in which I said, among others things, that Twitter can never replace comments because not only is it effectively a one-to-one communication channel, Twitter messages are also far too short to foster any form of coherent conversation. Over the weekend, a silly link-bait story illustrated my point perfectly.

All phones I ever owned have had a setting to be notified when the message reaches its receiver. I do not use it, but has noticed the setting is there. I have not upgraded to what is currently considered a smartphone, though, and wouldn't be too surprised if they lacked this feature. (I'm pretty sure my phone was markeded as a smartphone before iOS and Android arrived, but whatever.)
