There is very little in life that makes me crazier than the “tweet this” little messages that mediocre minds mock up when crafting that perfect prose for a blog post.
I don’t even know why it bothers me so much. I’m not a big fan of being told what to do. And I do get triggered pretty easily, even though I’ve been meditating for 6 years and watching Oprah everyday for 7.
But for some odd reason, the “click to tweet” button makes me want to jump through my Imac and put the author into a reverse naked triangle choke and pretend not to hear him tap.
And i don’t even know any real jujitsu, which makes that move a problem.
Here is the thing though:
If you are going to use the tweet this button, please, por favor, make the little bit of pithy prose you post that deserves a tweet something smart or clever or interesting or insightful or inspiring or thoughtful or deep or unique or ecclectic + interesting in a way that Hemingway would appreciate.
Otherwise, you are just contributing more cheesy content to the already dubious dumbing down of the world and adding more ammunition to the nefarious narcissism of low expectations that has befallen us all.
Please tweet that shit above, though. I re-wrote it 3 times especially for you.
