warrior ant press and the rise of the twitterati / by Warrior Ant Press Worldwide Anthill Headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, USA.

Warrior Ant Press, utilizing techniques, technology, and methods too sophisticated (and potentially contentious) to describe on this blog recently subscribed to it's one millionth Twitter feed. The result insures that m.o.i. will never lack for information, and will in fact, constantly suffer from information and media overload. During peak times, typically weekend nights, Twitter feeds arrive at a rate of about one a second. My wireless network, straining under the weight of this gregarious stream of thoughts, has threatened me with sanctions.

A random sampling of recent tweets:
