The Library of Congress is going to archive every single tweet. I know…it’s a great public service that will serve future generations incredibly well.
Like me, I am sure you’re wondering what your great grandkids will think if, eighty years from now, they dive into this treasure trove of genius at the LOC?
Here are 8 questions they might ask:
- Where can I get me some hashtag? Great Grandpa and his pals were gettin’ waaaaay high on that stuff.
- Was there any good music made in 2010? If so, why the hell were they so fixated on some little brat named Bieber?
- How is it possible that everyone on Twitter – including the celebrities of the day – was a “social media expert”?
- Was this AplusK guy some kind of cult leader? He had more followers than Jesus.
- Why did those attention whores want to tell their friends about what they ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner?
- What exactly were those people following on Fridays? Was it that cultist AplusK dude or the hot blond chick with the ‘i’ at the beginning or her name?
- Did this Steve Jobs guy have some kind of mind meld over Great Grandpa and his Twitterati cronies? How the hell could his company have been a trending topic so often without actually having a Twitter account?
- Could those dumb asses actually tweet anything without completely butchering the language?
I think it is weird that if you have the location stuff enabled, they’d be able to track your movements…
