  1. Just for fun I wanted to post the lyrics to this crazy song. People no longer get 15 seconds of fame, they get segments of fame only as long as their hit YouTube video.
    You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter
    And if you aren’t there already you’ve missed it
    If you haven’t been bookmarked, retweeted and blogged
    You might as well not have existed
    In the old days it was all about achievements
    Collecting all your trophies in a shrine
    Then everybody came across the internet
    And suddenly you had to be online
    A home page was all you really needed
    To seem like a success but not a geek
    As long as you updated semi-annually
    And checked your email once or twice a week
    You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…
    Technology was moving rather quickly
    And the next thing you needed was a blog
    With intimate and detailed press releases
    And now and then a photo of your dog
    More recently the students brought us Facebook
    And everybody has a hundred friends
    The parties in the photos look amazing
    They’re not so great but everyone pretends
    You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…
    Now you need to publish every movement
    And every single thought to cross your mind
    I’m told the Twitterverse is full of rubbish
    But most of us are actually quite refined
    We validate each other’s insecurities
    And brag about the gadgets that we’ve bought
    We laugh out loud at every hint of jolliness
    And try to self-promote without being caught
    You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…
