Yes, Flutter is the New Twitter

What’s that you say? You still haven’t joined Twitter? You don’t see the point of constant 140-character status updates? Well, that’s suddenly okay! You can emulate the many developing third-world nations who leaped directly over landline telephones to cell networks, and bypass Twitter entirely for the next big thing: Flutter.

Now what we really need to do is figure out ways to harness Flutter to replace the mainstream media and transform science. Imagine lab goggles with your friends’ “flaps” scrolling across them: you’ll never need to leave the bench to “have a life!” w00t!

    Flutter is old news; everyone knows the future is Bitter, which only lets you put a 0 or 1 in each post. You can’t get more condensed than that.

    Nice! 🙂

    I think a lot of people (myself included) are somewhat bitter about the time it takes to follow Twitter.

    This is almost moronic enough to be true.

    OMG! How much shorter can the average attention span get?!

    Actually, I think the answer to not having enough time for Twitter is to go back to blogging. Instead of tweeting all throughout the day set aside 15 or 20 minutes three or four times a week to post something on a blog.

    Har har har, I WISH it took me 15-20 minutes to write something up for my blog. More like 1-2 hours.
