Leonard might be on to something

Leonard Pitts admitted last summer that he doesn't blog.
"Most blogs strike me as bits of unpolished, undigested thought, something you dash off as opposed to something you really write. It's just not something I really want to do."
Fair enough.

And today Leonard shares with us that he doesn't tweet!
"Now here is Twitter, which encourages you to narrate your life in real time as opposed to, well . . . living it. I'm sorry, but include me out."
I'm afraid I agree with Leonard on this one.

But one reader summed it up much better than Leonard in the comments section: "I love Twitter. It keeps the irrelevant, banal people busy so the rest of us can get on with life."

  1. This is the kind of thinking that's killing the newspaper. There are scores of old timey newspaper people who still haven't realized their medium is dead, and refuse to recognize the value of new media.

    There are blogs providing better content than a lot of newspapers. And to imply that there is no "unpolished, undigested thought" in the pages of the Herald is indicative of an alarming disconnect with reality. Maybe Pitts, like many others, stopped subscribing to the Herald.

    For ages, old people have been complaining about new technologies. This is nothing new.
