Morning Message: Why Matt Labash Still Thinks Twitter is a Waste of His Time and Yours

By this point The Weekly Standard/The Daily Caller‘s Matt Labash gets the lure of Twitter. The more people pass your stories along, the more your work gets read. And what kind of vain writer doesn’t want others reading his words?

Still, Twitter is dead to him. And it looks like that’s how it’s going to remain.

In his advice column this week, Labash writes “Why Twitter is killing America.” He tells a reader asking about Social Media to present her boss with two lists — historical figures who’ve made The Atlantic‘s “Top 100 Figures in American History.” They include Ralph Waldo Emerson and Jonas Salk. And then show those with top Twitter billing. They include Kim and Kourtney Kardashian. Labash advises, “Instruct your boss to compare and contrast the names on those two lists, then to go kill himself. But before he does, ask him to give you a raise, just for having to endure his mediocrity.”
