Can micro-blogging be blogging?

I have been twittering the inauguration today.

I'm not going to do a full recap. High points:

  1. Elizabeth Alexander's poem wasn't great, but had great moments—"Pick up your pencils: begin." (I'm sticking with my colon, even though I'm sure that "begin" is probably written as a single-word sentence.)

  2. Including the word "non-believers" was a huge rhetorical moment, even though I apparently misheard it as "unbelievers."

  3. Joseph Lowery's closing benediction was really good. And even Warren's invocation wasn't bad, even if it was from Warren.

  4. Gene Robinson's invocation at the "We Are One" concert last night was even better. HBO didn't air it, but I don't have HBO anyway.

  5. Aretha Franklin owes me money. I said it, it must be true.

  6. Wow. Just wow. :-)
