Shark Jumper

I'm a little late on this article, which makes me as guilty as everyone else. And yes, I see the irony in this.

The Daily Beast's Mark McKinnen writes:

"It's not a business—and now that Rep. Joe Barton is doing it, it's not even hip anymore.

It’s time to Twitter the f%$k up.

It’s just madness. First email. Then instant message. Then MySpace. Then Facebook. Then LinkedIn. Then Twitter. It’s not enough anymore to “Just do it.” Now we have to tell everyone we are doing it, when we are doing it, where we are doing it and why we are doing it.

Every day I am being told to sign up for Tumblr, Yammer, Friendfeed, Plaxo, Last.fm, ping.fm or the hot social-media tool du jour that happened to get mentioned on Mashable.com. It is like a social-media arms race. Each one of these “new” tools is like a cool new night club. Hot today, gone tomorrow, replaced with something else."

And for more Twitter ad nauseum go here
