Here is a very sobering piece of news. Twitter has killed one of the greatest love stories of our time: Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer.
According to a source quoted in the Telegraph:
"John suddenly stopped calling her or returning her emails and when she would finally catch up with him, he'd say: 'I've been so busy with work. I'm sorry I haven't had time to call you back. … Jen was fuming. There he was, telling her he didn't have time for her and yet his page was filled with Twitter updates. … Every few hours, sometimes minutes, he'd update with some stupid line. And in her mind, she was like 'He has time for all this Twittering, but he can't send me a text, an email, make a call?'"
I read John Mayer's Twitter and it is much more interesting than his music. I would say the fault lies with Jennifer Aniston for not knowing the difference between "Twittering" and "tweeting" — and for not recognizing the profundity and value of tweets like, "How many megapixels are my eyes?" and "Rule: you can't call a nude woman posing on the internet a "teen" if she clearly has a scar from a polio shot."
