The Hyperconnected | TIME

Twitter in Time -- although not in an entirely positive light 

There's something delightfully self-deprecating about that name, Twitter--we're all just a bunch of happy birdies, tweeting away in our trees!--but it also makes me nervous. It's like the cocaine of blogging or e-mail but refined into crack. Internet addiction is an old story, but we're on the tipping point of a new kind of problem that might more broadly be called an addiction to data, in all its many and splendiferous forms.
