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.
The Twittersphere was abuzz today with several posts about a website called One Sentence. It’s a place where brevity and a quick trip to the essence of the story is celebrated and honored.
