Twitter? You mean the internet right? Either way, this "the presumption to assume that their opinion is actually valid, wise or amusing" is the only reason any forum exists, everybody who posts to a forum like this falls into this category.
No signature worth mentioning...
Ugh, don't get me started, I HATE carveries!
Nicely done. A genuine laugh out loud moment - thanks.

Aggressive lane changers on the motorways (so often Audi and Passat drivers)
Middle lane morons

No, I most certainly do not mean "the internet".
"...The only reason any forum exists..." - I'm pretty sure that when conceived, whathifi.com's raison d'être was advice and information-sharing, not a platform for unsolicited potification and / or opinions?
*sigh* Ok, that's why WHF *started* the forum, however if no-one used it, it wouldn't still be here, the only reason people use it or any other forum is to pontificate or offer opinions that they think are "valid, wise or amusing". Everybody thinks they know best, that's why the internet is the success story that it is, it doesn't make sense to single out Twitter or any other single medium on the internet for that criticism, it's everywhere you look.
Shouldn't that be one of your favourite things?
I must confess, there are some very annoyed people on here! - personally, I don't really find anything particularly annoying, I simply can't be bothered (which some people might find annoying)
You don't von Trapp me that easily...

I really, really think you should not apply your psyche to everyone on forums. OR Speak for yourself.
Apple Lossless - ATV3 - AVI ADM 40 or Marantz CD50SE (modded] - AVI ADM 40
also ATV3 into AVI ADM 9T [my wife's system] and Grado SR80i
You would though, wouldn't you though?
I love the smell of misogyny in the morning.

I really, really think you should not apply your psyche to everyone on forums.
I was, I merely questioning the logic of singling Twitter out for that sort of criticism, doesn't seem to make much sense to me.
How is life back in the 1970s?
Well *that's* the weirdest ad hominem I've seen in a while...
