No, because Tao Lin's tweets are better than most of his long-form blogging these days.
Sorry, that last one wasn't a question.
I only have one "favorite" tweet, and it's by Tao Lin: "i 'chugged' iced coffee then felt what seemed like 'nothing' then felt sort of worried then thought 'what did you expect' in a kind tone"
But I also really liked a tweet by someone named @Babylonian who I take to be a gamer, which went something like this: "finally 'unfollowed' @tao_lin feel like a 'huge' weight of 'reading' schizophrenic 'tweets' of a 'pretentious' 'douche' has been 'lifted'"

Why are there no great female composers?
