Limerick a la Tharoor

Reactions: 
(Updated)
If we all must continue using Tweeter,
Our language, folks, needs to be neater.
We cannot call people who fly cattle,
And expect not to get into battle,
When some cattle still travel by sleeper.

Or even better, to Tweeter let's call a ban.
For being social is the very nature of man.
And if we don't want to be left in the lurch,
Pay heed to what they say in research,
Tweet makes for a very lonely man.

Context for last line:

(Also, for those who didn't get the 'Tweeter' references, please check out the inimitable Arnab in Amit Varma's post here.)

  1. Ha ha! Good job! I just tweeted these lines: Young Mr Tharoor/ Became a minister/ Riding on a holy cow/ He tweeted on a whim/ The cow came behind him/ And frightened Mr Tharoor away.
