Ms. Dowd & Mr. Bell

ME: The telephone seems like letter-writing without the paper and pen. Is there any message that can’t wait for a passenger pigeon?

BELL:Possibly the message I’d like to deliver to you right now.

ME: Why did you think the answer to telegrams was a noisy new telegram?

BELL: We have designed the receiver so you can leave it off the hook.

Zur Erklärung: Maureen Dowd interviewte – für die New York Times, no less – die Erfinder von Twitter, um „herauszufinden, ob sie so lästig sind wie ihre Erfindung“.
