IS GRAMMAR SUFFERING FROM A 140 CHARACTERS DISEASE?

characters to express himself, he still would have rocked

This article is inspired  by a tweet from @lilmissmachete, stating that grammar is suffering from a 140 characters disease.

Twitter is a social media platform that allows you to post your thoughts online using 140 characters. It can be defined as a micro-blogging service.

Unlike the social network Facebook, Twitter was created with the purpose of allowing users to post text content exclusively. In the present time, however, this tool allows uploading pictures and video links keeping the principle of caption it them with no more than 140 characters.

This micro-blog, that has 500 million users as of 2012, challenges you to condense your ideas, communicate effectively and to standout from the cyber-crowds as long as you have the audacity to tailor your ideas.

I truly believe, 100 years from now, people will say our current English sound like Old English. Can you relate to that?

In today’s world, attention span is decreasing. Twitter is the perfect example that you don’t need a thousand words to convey your message.

Peace,
