There are many things to dislike about Twitter, the social media engine.
Too much information flies by; too little information can be absorbed. Most of the information is random commentary — and too often, when it comes to news, false.
But it does have an amazing way of bringing this huge, disparate world together.
For some odd reason, I like to peruse Twitter when there’s a huge televised event, such as the Superbowl or, many moons ago, the presidential debates.
Partly, I enjoy the wittiness of perfect strangers — and sometimes of celebrities (Albert Brooks is watching the same thing I am!).
I’m more impressed, however, at how often Twitter’s trending topics are in Spanish or another language.
I’m glad to know I’m just a small fish in a big world. That millions of people out there seem to care about something I have no connection to.
It makes me appreciate the largeness of life — and humanity.
