Link Du Jour: All Your Tweets Are Belong to Us
Abby (the) Librarian recently wrote about The Library of Congress acquiring the Twitter archive (click here to read more at MSNBC). This deal means that the LOC will be preserving every tweet ever written until, most likely, the end of time.
I use Twitter to share such inanities as children’s lit-themes tatoos and other foolishness…
…and the idea that these comments will be preserved certainly makes me think twice about how they will be perceived in the future. In order to make my children’s children’s children think I was an important person and serious academic, I will take the following steps:
1. I no longer use the term “retweet” (or RT) when I pass along another person’s tweet – I will use “vis-Ã -vis”.
2. I will grow a beard for my profile picture.
3. All my tweets will begin with the phrase, “We hold these truths to be self-evident…”.
Thanks for supporting these changes.
