Are you already in danger of becoming a 'Twitteraholic? Apparently this is the terrible fate that awaits you if you join 'Twitter', the latest addictive 'hit' on the web.
And what is 'Twitter'? It is a kind of 'Class A' minimalist blogging 'digital high' for internet exhibitionists, many of whom may be already addicted to the 'gateway' chat and 'text' communication modes.
On 'Twitter' only a very short message line is allowed in each 'post', so like 'crack(er)' users, Twitter addicts are constantly chasing the next high.

For a more rational, less 'Twitter' zonked, and longer explanation kottke.org does a good job.
