Yoko Ono’s on Twitter, how awesome is that? To celebrate this I tweeted (mgerber937) the following: “So I went to her Twitter feed, and it said, ‘…’ Nothing else, just ‘…’ and I thought, ‘Wow, that could be anything. Could be ‘yes,’ ‘no’, ‘piss off’, whatever you wanted it to be. It reflects your own internal monologue–you’re Twittering yourself. And that’s really quite brilliant, because that’s what cyberspace is all about.”
(In celebration of Yoko in cyberspace, I’m riffing on various breathless run-on Lennon interview-quotes about meeting Yoko at the Indica:
This was near the door when you went in. I climbed the ladder, you look through the spyglass and in tiny little letters it says ‘yes’. So it was positive. I felt relieved. It’s a great relief when you get up the ladder and you look through the spyglass and it doesn’t say ‘no’ or ‘fuck you’ or something, it said ‘yes’.
OK, not hysterical, but if I can’t put that here, where can I put it?)
Hearing about this (in the NYT review of that “universally acclaimed” Plastic Ono Band/Happy Birthday Yoko concert last week) made me think there might be something to like about Twitter after all. “…like an unfinished church with a sky ceiling.” Yeah.
