Keith Starky explains Twitter

posted by Jason Kottke   Apr 15, 2009

Keith Starky’s blog examines tweets as “part of his ongoing research in humor propagation and fluid reputation dynamics”.

The central conceit of the “tweet” in this case is the idea that Ninjas, which are black-clad martial artists who employ tactics of stealth to both defeat their opponents and avoid waking people up at night when they go to the bathroom, could partake in some of the worldy pleasures of the non-Ninja world (e.g., crunchy snacks) if that non-Ninja world consisted entirely of people wearing noise-canceling headphones. Henceforth we refer to this world as Headphone-World.

Sorry for the two “explains Twitter” posts in a row. I’ll make the next two extra special (i.e. “explains Facebook”). (via jim ray)
