@UncleDynamite waxes eloquent on twitter's trollish whinerati

Don't Point That Thing at Me • Twitter and her malcontents:
I’m going to keep on doing what I’m doing, the way I’ve been doing it. If that’s painful for you in any way, or fills you with some kind of anguish, I think you know which button on my page you need to push. And we don’t need to talk about it. Ever. EVER.
The entire post is well said. That it had to be said at all, by anyone, ever, is too bad.

Off on a tangent, when I see articles and such about how blogging is dead, this is the kind of thing that makes me chuckle, because you'll notice that, while it's specific to twitter, it couldn't actually be said on twitter. Uncle's good at the twitter machine, but would you have read that if it had been six or seven tweets with "1 of ?" appended at the end? I don't think I'd have stuck it out, or been able to piece it together from the fragments in my stream.

I'm not saying blogging is the thing many back in 1999 thought it would end up being. It may die yet. Facebook, or the next Facebook (once the current incarnation is MySpaced), may kill it off. But twitter won't. Can't. Tweeting, blogging, and facebooking are in no combination mutually excluding.
