It’s in the Constitution. Look it Up!

Well, it was inevitable. Now that the Internet is up for a Nobel Peace Prize and access to it declared a “fundamental human right,” it was only a matter of time. I’m talking, of course, about the self-evident truth that Twitter is “fundamental to democracy.” Paul Revere had to fall back on all that “one if by land, two if by sea” stuff because the network was down, I guess.

Oh, and little known fact: “The Death of Socrates” actually depicts the moment when Socrates has announced he’s de-activated his Twitter account and deleted his profile on Facebook because he’s sick of spammers and “Farmtown” requests. Plato, whose “Republic” is replete with references to the absolute necessity of social networking sites to his ideal state, can be seen at the foot of the bed, having just tweeted: “@crato Socrates is such a drama queen. Lol.”
