In the “there’s nothing new under the sun” department, I read an interesting article about John Quincy Adams and his propensity to write short notes in his diary several times a day. Kinda like Twitter. In fact, so like Twitter that they have created a Twitter account for him and are posting from his diary to Twitter.
Many people have questioned the value of Twitter, and yet people have kept diaries for years. Some private, some not so much. Some wordy, and then some not so much. John Quincy Adams just reminds us that Twitter is just a new way to do an age old thing.
