Tweets, Twits

For better or worse, Twitter is moving the picket fences of good taste as the formerly private becomes increasingly public.

There are dads tweeting (sending Twitter posts) from the delivery room. There is a father who decided that the way to honor his soldier son was to try and get a bunch of strangers to let their thumbs do his bragging and move "aaron" ("They killed my son," he originally posted) up the tweetscale. And then there's the celeb son who twittered his love for dead dad Billy Mays, as well as the original announcement of his passing.

From a currently favored POV: Twits, indeed.
