Twitter is the ultimate platform to fill our desire for news, entertainment and communication designed to be easily digested for our society’s short attention span. But critics complain: “how do you say something meaningful with such a restricted word count?”

Ask John D. Rockefeller
“A friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship.” (81 characters)

Ask George Carlin
“Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.” (50 characters)

Ask Pierre Eliot Trudeau
“The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation.” (56 characters)

“Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” (79 characters)

All these public figures have been repeated, republished and recited. If they were around today they would be retweeted. Now, let’s challenge ourselves to say something half as valuable with almost twice the number of characters!
