My grandmother was a flapper. Now I can be one, too!

So I was being a good librarian and reading April 8th's American Libraries Direct. They always have technology stuff down at the bottom. So imagine my surprise to see the headline "Twitter be worried. Introducing Flutter". I couldn't believe it!! I spend enough of my free time on Facebook keeping up with family and friends, and I had not even gotten into Twitter yet. Now they have Flutter to replace it? Flutter limits you to 26 character posts (as opposed to Twitter's 140) that are called "flaps". They call it "nanoblogging". So I click on the link to find out more. It links you to a video.

It is hilarious. I wish I'd thought of it.
