Remarkable - I didn't understand a word of it.

Hard to believe you can speak Chinese and not understand tweets. I think you're heart is just not into it because you hate the corruption of the language. ;~)

In part yes, although I wouldn't say I speak Chinese. All the arbitrary contractions and devices are the result of misusing a telephone keypad, which is the clumsiest possible way of generating text. Maybe it's a bit like learning to drive a car with chopsticks and thinking it's wonderful because all the kids on Sesame Street are doing it these days.

But of course the worst part is that it's called twitter in the continuing tradition of using infantile terminology and references to dumb down all conversation. I mean how the hell can one be a grumpy and caustic old curmudgeon using numbers for words? u r ignrnt? Methinks not.

LOL Fogg. Please don't ever change. Your curmudgeonly self is a great comfort to me as the one constant in my life.
