To tweet or not to tweet

To tweet or not to tweet, that is the question;
Whether 'tis mobler° in the daily grind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous Friends,
Or to make Blocks against a sea of troublemakers,
And by opposing them, end them.


                                    To shut down, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to network. Ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of network what friends may come,
When we have left our lonely clamshell°,
Must give up pause.


Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of our iPhones' light
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And twitters of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the screen names of action.
