A Twitter's Worth a Thousand Words, And a Couple People's Jobs

Give or Take

Welcome to "The Media is Dying," a new Twitter account that keeps you updated as to who is losing their jobs and what publications are shutting down, all in an easy to read, 140 words-or-less format.

The quick sugarbursts include such large-scaled rumors as "Expect more layoffs from NAT ENQUIRER, STAR etc - publisher just missed a multi million debt payment," as well as personal side of things, "Vanessa Juarez is no longer with ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY."

Hey, if you can make a quick buck or two (does Twitter have an ad-supported program?) off of keeping others updated in the adocalypse loop, then god bless you. Just keep the death sentences to the media, and try not to Twitter any real funerals.

The "twitter" thing is over, already, folks–it's just incredibly, amazingly, annoyingly STUPID. People: If you need to write something, write a text message with proper spelling, proper grammar, complete sentences, complete paragraphs, complete spelling–and complete thoughts. Do any of you realize just how stupid and childish anyone over the age of 8 looks with these dumb, stupid, juvenile, amateurish and childish messages? Pretty stupid, people. Write a complete sentence and write a complete paragraph–or actually call someone and speak to them directly–if you want to communicate in a clear, simple, adult manner. Grow up, people.

Greetings thefrontpage. I beg to differ with you about Twitter. I felt like you do now months ago when Twitter was new–I just didn't get it. I started Twittering last week and to my surprise, I found myself in an interesting group of literati, music lovers and newshounds. As a result I have been turned on to an inside look at the book world, and lots of wonderful links to music and book recommendations, and interesting news.

Just what I need, another reminder of why I should have never picked 2008 to graduate college and begin a career in media. I wonder if anyone's ever Twittered a suicide note?

If you can't communicate with real, compete sentences, paragraphs and thoughts, then you can't communicate well. The vast majority of these dumb messages sound as if the senders are 4 years old–that remains the same. Pick up the phone and talk, Type out a real paragraph and communicate in an intelligent manner. Grow up, everyone.

I'm jealous because you can see a picture in that series of punctuation marks. My guesses are that the first one is either a dragon or a pig, and the second one is boobs with no nipples.

The second one is a drive-by assing. It's a super old Mollygood reference. ::sheds single tear::

The first one was my best attempt to make fun of people who actually know how to type out a different cat-face for every emotion.
