twitter: Text is cheap, so the number of characters is limited by a dictatorial corporate overlord..Arguably useful for circulating headlines, slogans and black-box links. Arguably a stupid forum for debate.

@ralphine: well, both of those were about 30 years after this, so he had changed a bit. March was an awesome actor, though, from decade to decade.

Filter is the appropriate verb. Twitter, like FB, is entertaining if you have something substantial to say. To tell folks what you had for breakfast isn't really worth my time. Now, if you had breakfast with Mark E. Smith, that is worthwhile.
