Link mailing list complains about twitter, news at 11

I’m starting to get quite annoyed with the level of complaining about twitter on the Link mailing list. It seems that people can’t understand why a short form status publishing service is interesting. Fine. But the bit I don’t get is why they can’t just ignore it — its not like anyone is forcing them to use it… Its a bit like MySpace. If you don’t like it, just ignore it.

That is all.
