"[T]he presumption of social media is that even the tiniest subjective micronarrative is worthy not only of private notation, as in a diary, but of sharing with other people. The US president now operates on this presumption."

Oh John, I've never claimed that you should take me seriously. Quite the opposite actually. I got 3 deep thoughts written by you, so I guess I hit a nerve. BTW, do you really support health care for everybody? Man, we gotta talk soon...way too much to cover!
It wasn't really you. I've been stewing over a lot of remarkably stupid things I've been reading since the Peace Prize was announced. Then the thoughts just kept pouring out. I'm kinda surprised I came up with four, pretty much in a row, that all have exactly 140 characters. That's harder to do than you might think.
I can't count to 140, so yes, I imagine it is hard. I think my recent Obama posts have just been repressed anger with those uber-supportive Obama people that just simply will not admit that he is human, he is a bit over his head right now, and he made a lot of promises that nobody could ever keep, but instead of saying that he may have bitten off more than he can chew, they find anyone that can change the subject (Rangel, Wilson, Limbaugh). So, I use my anger/comedic twist to poke fun at him. I figure, Bush 43 got overly mocked in the press, and Obama deserves the same from time to time.
