Try singing the title to High Hopes and you’ll understand…
Everywhere you turn, Twitter.
Every move you make, Twitter!
Every breath you take, Twitter!
Twitter Twitter Twitter!
It’s not just you. It’s not just young, social-media addicts or those pesky internet marketing geeks (Wait, we’re Internet marketing geeks, really good ones!).
Oprah’s doing it.
Ashton’s doing it.

There’s only one problem. You bore us.
Stop using Twitter to announce that you’re drinking coffee. Well, it’s okay if your coffee beans come out of a Peruvian dingo’s behind while eco-friendly non-migrant fair-trade coffee farm owners separate the beans and charge you $112 a pound. Now that’s worth Twittering.
