Anyone Else Think Twitter Is Stupid?

Take this Twitter exchange, for instance:

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley... issued two angry "tweets" Sunday morning as the president wrapped up an overseas tour.
For months Obama had left the details of health care legislation to Congress, then inserted himself firmly into the debate in recent days, including using his weekly radio address Saturday to declare "it's time to deliver" on health reform.

Grassley's first tweet: "Pres Obama you got nerve while u sightseeing in Paris to tell us 'time to deliver' on health care. We still on skedul/even workinWKEND."

A short time later: "Pres Obama while u sightseeing in Paris u said 'time to delivr on healthcare' When you are a 'hammer' u think evrything is NAIL I'm no NAIL."

Now, it isn't very hard for Senator Grassley to make himself look bad, but this is just sad.

Is that really the level of discourse we want from a US Senator? Why not just blog and put a few more words down than that (and maybe even spell them correctly!)?

With that being said, we have a Twitter and you should visit it often.
