(Okay, I hate the word "Tweeple" but it worked in the headline.) Because you see, I've noticed that people on Twitter seem far less concerned about the economy, far more optimistic about the future, than people anywhere else I look online. While most every blog, newspaper site, message board and the like is filled with "the sky is falling" rhetoric, Twitter is all about accentuating (and retweeting) the positive.
And while I'm not sure whether that's due to etiquette, ignorance, denial, prescience or some combination thereof, it sure as heck is comforting.
Which I why I think I've been spending a whole lot more time on Twitter lately.
