“Don’t Need to Think…”

… therefore I am

on twitter.

 

If the Internet of 1995 was a postmodern playhouse, allowing individuals to engage in unbridled expression, [Sherry] Turkle describes it today as a corporate trap, a ball and chain that keeps us tethered to the tiny screens of our cellphones, tapping out trite messages to stay in touch. She summarizes her new view of things with typical eloquence: “We expect more from technology and less from each other.”

can’t see the forest
too many trees
can’t hear the buzz
too many bees
can’t tell the sexy
from the sleaze
on twitter

might be here
from switzerland
might be here
from pakistan
might be here
from neverland
never need
to understand
never need
attention span
on twitter

can’t tell
sir from ma’am
can’t tell
viet from nam
can’t tell the lion
from the lamb
don’t need to think
therefore i am
on twitter
