It appears to be Twitter Day here at The New York Times. My search shows 32 references to the short message service so far today, not including this post. (Earth Day, however, still warrants twice as much coverage.) Among the Times’s takes on Tweeting:

Maureen Dowd sneers that she “would rather be tied up to stakes in the Kalahari Desert, have honey poured over me and red ants eat out my eyes than open a Twitter account.”

Jenna Wortham explains that she is a “fascinated voyeur, transfixed by the streams of bursts, musings, insights and complaints unfurling before my eyes.”
