This strangulated burble, with its Pixabay picture of Iron Soldiers from Worpswede in Germany, is aimed squarely at the near-continuous streams of consciousness known collectively as Twitter. Some call it "the Twittersphere", others "the Twitterverse", or "Tweetverse". It is a melting pot of all that is, both good and bad, on the Internet. Twitter is so handy for searching for, say, traffic conditions near Milton Keynes, or the progress of a passenger flight from Auckland to Los Angeles. Equally, however, it is too easy to stumble across something you'd wished you hadn't: lewd and crude, no holds barred. The app has no setting to prevent it, and it's so keen to show you, as you type, what it thinks you want to see, that... well, 'nuff said!
