Twitter to be Archived in The Library of Congress: Scholarly Intelligence Takes a Hit
thelargestlibrary10uf2.jpgFrom YBNBY The Hell is Freezing Over Desk...

The Library of Congress, that hallowed facility which serves as a cathedral to the written word, a pillar of the arts, a holy place for scholars, is welcoming a retarded step brother who is deaf, dumb and blind (but can still play a mean pinball) into it's halls.

It has been announced that alongside the Guttenberg Bible, a rough draft of the Declaration of Independence, and the words of Shakepeare, Proust and Yeats, will be an archive of TWITTER MESSAGES.
In an extraordinary agreement with Twitter's founders, the Library of Congress - the world's largest library and America's oldest federal institution - is to create a digital archive of the several billion tweets publicly posted on the social networking site since its inception in 2006.

This makes perfect sense. While you are looking for the right Walt Whitman poem for your research paper, you can cross-reference the work with Paris Hilton's tweet "club is poppin 4 real. LOL." Everything is relative. You can quote the Greek poet Aeschylus and the American waste of platelets Heidi Montag without leaving the building. "OMG, pinkberry is so nummy!!!!!!!" That was the new plastic Heidi, not Aeschylus.

The fact that we are becoming more stupid just keeps getting driven home with a sledgehammer.

Fill up the shark tank, rev up the motorboat, put Fonzie in waterskis and tell him he and The Library of Congress is on in five.

That quote is now catalogued in The Library of Congress!

Johnny, it's a catalog of stupidity that will one day benefit America.

Future generations will be able to pinpoint exactly where we went wrong.

I guess that is looking at this debacle as a glass half full.
