Stephen Fry vs. Twitter

Twitter isn't fun anymore. In fact, it's become a gigantic cesspool.  Occasionally I find something amusing on it (or about it), but that stalwart of British comedy Stephen Fry hits the bull's-eye with this commentary.  Here's an piece of it:
" ... let us grieve at what twitter has become.  A stalking ground for the sanctimoniously self-righteous who love to second-guess, to leap to conclusions and be offended – worse, to be offended on behalf of others they do not even know.  It’s as nasty and unwholesome a characteristic as can be imagined.  It doesn’t matter whether they think they’re defending women, men, transgender people, Muslims, humanists … the ghastliness is absolutely the same."
By the way, Twitter is complicit in its own degradation.
