The entire thread is an interesting and amusing read. It does show how people are willing, even eager, to adopt cute but unnecessary technology without understanding the wider implications.

I do not have access to Twitter, so I shall assume the link is funny and laugh along.

Ah well, you're not missing *too* much ;-) Twitter is 50% people pissing in the wind, 40% shrieking, and 10% mildly funny. Scientific analysis has confirmed this.
