Some Humor from James Anderson on “Tweeting”

My friend, James Anderson (one of Reformed Theol. Seminary-Charlotte’s newest professors in philosophy), just posted a hysterically funny post on his blog about Twitter. He constructs 19 different types of arguments on why one should not tweet. Click here for a good chuckle. Bravo, James!

Update:

I’ve been inspired to provide one more argument against Twitter to add to James’ post:

Here’s a Wittgensteinian argument:

1. A word’s use determines its meaning.
2. I do not use Twitter.
3. Therefore, Twitter is meaningless.

Yes, I know, I know, this suffers from the fallacy of equivocation (due to differing senses of *use*).  But, in satire, anything goes!
