Really, it is asking a lot. Twitter’s rule that tweets run no longer than 140 characters – blank spaces included! – means a tweet has an average length of a single sentence, and the word “inconsequentialities” rarely gets used, even though it sums up most of Twitter’s content pretty well.

I wrote that when I was somewhat less worldly.
I now know a politician's dozen is two.
