Is texting and tweeting "too much of a hassle?" Rep. Bob Latta (R-Ohio) posed the question on Monday using his official Twitter account.
Latta linked to an article about a new social media site called DailyBooth that allows users to post updates primarily using photos. In light of the new software, Latta asks if social media platforms that require users to type words involve too much effort.

The tweet links to a Wall Street Journal interview with DailyBooth co-founders Ryan Amos and Jon Wheatley. The duo just secured a venture capital funding for their site.
"Most people are using a Web cam to post pictures of themselves and then following other users. First it was 140 characters and now people are using pictures, because it is easier," said Wheatley.
"People following you get so much more gratification seeing a photo rather than reading a tweet about something," he added.
