Joe Sixpack is a tweeting twit whose attention span is commensurate with the length of his 'tweets.' Do not these tweeting twits fear that their brains will soon be fit only to flit?

I see this happening at my tutoring center, as students with cell phone addiction try to hide the fact that they're either texting or tweeting under the table. Some bloggers who tweet have observed that Twitter sucks out any desire to blog at length. "Brains that flit," indeed. I worry about where this is leading.
