Normally, the loss of a friend is followed by some period of emotional mourning:
Why? Please, let me make it up to you!or an anger-infused binge of self-justification:
I'm better off without that pebble-chucking misanthrope anyhow!But with Twitter, the celerity in which I've seen followers come and go leaves no time for reflection. And I have no desire to find out why people 'qwit', and even less need to mend any severed connections.
I guess that's the real power of Twitter.
