Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Tweet, Tweet, Tweet

Plan to break up with your significant other? Don’t do it by Twitter.

From here on out, every 140-character or less message you create will be housed for posterity at the Library of Congress. In partnership with Twitter, the library has already preserved¬†about 170 billion public tweets. This encompasses every public tweet from Twitter’s launch in 2006 through 2010.

Now, the next step is figuring out how to make that mountain of information accessible to the public.

In the meantime, for long-term strategic reasons, you might not want to flame anyone on Twitter. A Phone text message might be the more prudent and private option. Or why not go truly retro and make an old-fashioned crank call?
