Tom Tomorrow, creator of the syndicated strip This Modern World, on Twitter:
For awhile I thought it might be fun to start sending out tweets every few minutes, about my most banal activities. Brushed my teeth! Took a shit! Checked my email! Sending out a tweet! Except that seems to be pretty much what people are actually doing. Satire has to surpass reality, not simply reflect it.
I completely agree. Incidentally, you can follow me on Twitter here.
