“Twitter is great for quickly spreading a good idea. I use it every day. It’s the Big Bird of networking tools. However, Twitter is a lousy living tool. In fact, Twitter can become a distracting obstacle to deep thought, art, or relationships…

It would seem to me that the first step in living a good story is to stop telling everyone about the mundane details of life and to focus on real life.”
