Shields: Twitter 'sounds a little bit like a nervous condition'

Syndicated columnist Mark Shields is no fan of Twitter, he let C-SPAN viewers know Wednesday morning.

Shields said on Washington Journal:
I'm not Twittering, you know?. It sounds a little bit like a nervous condition. But, the ones I've seen are have been so self-indulgent and so narcissistic, Steve, that it just kind of -- here I am, I'm walking now, I just had a bite of my pizza, I'm walking into makeup.

They don't seem particularly reflective, insightful, or thoughtful. Rather than just sort of -- I know you'd be interested in my minor movements.

I find that rather offputting to tell you the truth.


Shields, like many journalists of an earlier generation
