To Tweet, or Not to Tweet

I am on Twitter as @mloclam and here is a small poem that I found online to talk about twitter 🙂

To tweet, or not to tweet: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous gossip,
Or to take arms against a sea of bloggers,
And by opposing end them? To unplug: to sleep thy computer;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural tweets
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To unplug, to sleep thy computer;
To sleep: perchance to interface: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of thy computer what interfacing may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal voicemail,
Must give us pause: there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long half-life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time-outs,
The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office and the spams
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his blog make
With a barebones server? who would post bear,
To grunt and tweet under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after twitter,
The undiscover’d website from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have followed
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of multiple entries,
And enterprises of great pitch and postings
With this regard their followers turn awry,
And lose the need of twitter…
