Hugh Laurie: ‘I Don’t Understand Twitter’
Posted by Adam
Hugh Laurie doesn’t understand Twitter.
The House actor has signed up to the popular social networking site and has gained thousands of followers — but he thinks it’s all pretty pointless.
“As I look around my friends’ tweets I see banality on all sides. I don’t understand the purpose of it,” he said.
“I think if people were able to take these 140 characters [allowed in each post] and develop a poetic Western form — a haiku of our own in which all human existence could be compressed into those 140 characters — that would be a satisfying thing, but that’s not what I see when I read them.”
