twitter is the borg

What are you doing?
twitter empowers people like you and me to communicate with each other on a higher level. After getting used to the ease of the system we assimilate with more and more people and casually reveal our thoughts as though inputting into a private journal. Yet these entries are being shared almost immediately by the collective group.
While we are not cybernetically enhanced humanoids of multiple species organized as an interconnected collective, we are technically enhanced humans of multiple nationalities, organized as an interconnected collective by twitter. Our decisions are not made by a hive mind, but sometimes the input guides us, giving us some directive.

Step by step
Maybe you began this Borg-like journey by using facebook as a convenient way to stay connected with your friends and family. You started with people you already knew and now you've upped your game with twitter. You've opened up your circle and are sharing more of yourself than ever before with people you may never ever meet in person. That part doesn't matter as much as it used to, because even without the face to face interaction, you know in a fashion, what they are thinking.
Too much information?
Twitter is ambient - updates from your friends and relatives float to your phone, IM, or web site but you are only expected to pay as much or as little attention to them as you see fit. You can step in and out of the flow of information as it suits you. The information is there, but you don't have to act on it. You're very well informed, but not quite a drone.
Resistance is futile
Admit it, you're on your way. People who don't twitter get a bit annoyed when you twitter around them. They feel you're not paying attention to what they're saying. They don't understand that you have the ability to do multiple things at once with your mind. If only there was some sort of hitech headband to strap on and to send thoughts out to your twitter collective, wait we mean community. And if only you could read the twitterings of others at will.
