Two of the great things about blogging are: one, anybody can do it, and two, you don’t have to answer to an editor. So, if a blogger has had some sort of post style, and wants to fiddle with it a little, there is no one to say he (or she) can’t.
Up until now, I haven’t posted anything unless I felt a had something more than the written equivalent of a sound bite. But then there’s Twitter. (By the way, check out my sidebar “Tweeproll.”) Twitter is very different from blogging, as anyone who has “tweeted” knows; you have just 140 characters to say your piece and get out. Do I look like the kind of guy who can say anything in 140 characters or less?
Ok, you don’t have to answer that — but it occurred to me that there can be a place for one-liners in a blog like this. One even gains a few characters by not having to insert tweeters’ names & all that. Not that I necessarily intend to hold strictly to the 140 limit here – I do not, after all, have an editor leaning over my shoulder.
