I often hear persons over a certain age express confusion about Twitter, a microblogging service. (Identi.ca is another, if more patronized by tech geeks.) Is it really so strange, though? A brief thought -- opinion, inspiration or fact -- has held long and customary place on church signs. And the Unitarians and Universalists each (before and after consolidation) made a literary form of it through the Community Wayside Pulpit poster program: another lamentable institutional loss.
More about recovering this practice soon.
