Dating in the Social Media Age

Check out the latest Daily Shouts column in the New Yorker: “Would You Like to Sit on My Bed with Me and Check Twitter?” by Ross Barkan.

I know, I know, it’s one thing to listen to Coltrane while checking Twitter on your own bed, alone, and it’s another to do it together, on the same bed. You’ll have so many notifications to get to, as will I, and you’ll be laughing faintly at a tweet you just read, while I’ll peer over your shoulder to see what I’m missing. You’ll say, “Nothing much,” and I’ll tell you about the awesome “Simpsons”-quotes accounts I follow. All of them are great.
