A Book of Tweets

"Thursday Jan. 1, 2009  18:20 Rousing from torpor to go to shops then come back and cook good things. Fried things, in all likelihood."

James Bridle decided to collect all his Twitter messages from the past two years and print them up in a hardcover book.  He will make one for you, "if you ask nicely and pay me a lot of money."

Why do such a thing?  Bridle explains, "When Twitter is inevitably replaced by something else, I don't wan to lose those incidentals, the casual asides, the remarks and responses.  That's all really.  This seems like a nice way to do it, and I'll probably do it again in a couple of years."

I honestly don't understand twittering and tweets- or to be more accurate, what the point is. I guess it's like the status in facebook? Except that it is to and from cellphones?
If so, yes, it sure will be replaced by something else- soon.

I'd like to comment on this, but I'm too busy cataloguing my opinions on which desserts benefit from the inclusion of fruit, and which ones are better off fruitless.

Cinnamon buns: raisins are an insult.

I honestly don't know where to start. The cover, featuring a scene from Moby Dick? The fact that there are "links" in the text? The very existence of such drivel in book form?
