I just logged into my Twitter account and was greeted by this happy whale with the message that “Twitter was over capacity. Too many Tweets.”   I give Twitter credit for social media optimism.  They didn’t take a doom and gloom approach to being out of service.  They told the truth — what choice did they have? — and used a colorful image to illustrate their point.

But it did make me wonder what was the tweet that was too much.  Was it about BP,  Stephen Strasburg’s phenomenal debut with the Washington Nationals,  the Gore split?

We have so much to talk about and yet so much of what we talk about it silly or inane.  We often don’t really act on fixing the hard issues but we sure like to talk about them.  And now with social media platforms, we have more ways to talk.  I’d like to see more action.  What about you?
