Twitter jumps the shark

Thursday,  04/16/09  11:08 PM

Today the Twitterverse really maxed out on hype, as Ashton Kutcher and CNN raced each other to 1,000,000 followers, and Oprah sent her first tweet

While driving to work I received an email from my friend Gary titled "what makes you think Twitter is useless?", linking the office chair which tweets when its occupant farts.  (My response: "sometimes the farts from that end are more insightful than the other")

Later while in a board meeting (!) I received the following "CNN Breaking News" alert: Ashton Kutcher is first to reach 1 million followers in Twitter contest with CNN

That's it, I said to myself.  Twitter has jumped the shark.
