• David Carr, the Wilt Chamberlain of tweeting

On Monday, I read David Carr’s weekly column in the New York Times—the paper, that is, not the website, as I remain the last man in America who pays to read the news, as opposed to reading it for free on the Internet.

I read David Carr’s column every Monday. I consider it must reading for any journalist—a well researched, wittily written, and thoughtful examination of the state of our industry.

Which, as you can imagine, is pretty bleak, since, as I already pointed out, I’m the one keeping it afloat as the only man in America still paying for the product.

This week, Carr wrote about one of my favorite topics—Twitter.
