Using Twitter has started to change my outlook on reading. I do it in bursts now. When I read emails, well the less important emails anyway, I read the first line of each paragraph and just assume that it’s the only important part. Important emails, I do read…but if you forward me something (like when my grandpa forwards me the same five email forwards in rotation), I won’t even bother looking at it. When I read my Kindle, I read it for 10 minutes in the morning and before I fall asleep. Newspaper articles, Perez Hilton’s website, etc. I now scan everything. I used to read a newspaper from start to finish. Not anymore. I used to write long blog posts. Meh.
