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.

If I was a Journalist I wouldn't even use Twitter. Facebook maybe, but not Twitter. It's trademark bird should be a Pidgeon, because it promotes pretty much a pidgeon's brain in people. All I could see myself using Twitter for is Trolling.


I use it as a way of conveniently recording random thoughts I have. Like the thought that the best attack against a Caesar Cipher is the Brutus Cipher.
