Executive Summary

Twitter is the new face of information overload. Even though the 'Tweet' message limit is 140 characters? multiply that by thousands of people's banter, and you have a cacophony of noise, and way more information than you can possibly digest at any one time. (Unless you choose to follow only a very few, select people? but statistically, the main use of Twitter is to build business, so most users follow thousands with the hopes of being "Followed back.") It is likely that the only way a human being could possibly process all of the data in their Twitter account would be to distance themselves emotionally and shut down the type of intellectual processing that requires empathy and insightful reflection.
