“We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”
A generation of poets
We have the best example of twitterese: Benjamin Franklin. He wrote stuff that stands the test of time, even today.
As if limited by the 140 characters in Twitter, Mr. Franklin composed memorable meanings. I think we should follow his example. Following his example, we could be raising a generation of poets whose economy of words will have depth and meaning.
Let’s give it a try.
Barrage on the mobs, barrage on your foes,
Barrage every time, it keeps the tanks on their toes.
Ouch. It is not as easy as it looks. Ben was a genius!
Marksman hunters like to top the charts
They stack crit, or get bad hunter farts.
Not exactly a “stitch in time saves nine.” Maybe I need practice.
Restoration Rejuvenation, healing in good taste,
For faster heals, ticking heals, use more Haste.
I’m hopeless! No one would remember that like they do Brother Ben’s fine work.
Let’s try again!
Stampede, Blink Strikes, a Murder of Crows;
Use Stampede against Single-Target Foes.
Well, you get the idea. Taking time to craft in this … uh …. Twitterverse might make the darn thing a fine tool with depth and economy.
