Taut tweets

Some people make fun of Twitter because trying to get your point across in 140 characters is tough.

Tough, but not impossible.

Good writing is spare, vivid and precise. I admire the Wall Street Journal. It's hard to edit their articles because the writing is already so clean. There is nothing superfluous.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery said it better than I can:

"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
