This is funnier than the original. Who is that woman and is she on twitter yet?

This is BRILLIANT!!

Maureen Dowd is a vapid twit. No pun intended.

If only she could understand parody.

I thought I'd die, this was so damn funny. Very nicely done!

Take that Dowd! Good one, Nancy.

LOVE this! Now I have something to send my real-life friends who don't (want to) get Twitter.

Oh, thank you for this, Nancy. Exactly the levity that was needed. Wow, is Maureen Dowd out of touch. I mean, you don't have to like Twitter, but to be so incredibly condescending to Ev & Biz! I thought they handled it brilliantly.

As have you! Love this hilarious parody.

You are my hero!

Bravo, Nancy!

Free speech at glorious work. I don't much like the phone either, but to each his own form of communication. Twitter is deliciously and devilishly brief, but also a playground for the self-absorbed. But no writer, or talker or thinker, for that matter, is not a little bit so afflicted. Self included.

Why is this listed under "Humor"? This isn't even remotely humorous.

Ha ha ha, awesome.

ObPedant: "carrier pigeons" delivered messages; "passenger pigeons" delivered themselves to extinction on a plate.

Though MoDo would likely confuse them.

@Nick S: Duly noted. God bless our loyal ObPedants.

Well done!

Hilarious! ;)

Brilliant. Bravo.

Really, really, really funny.

You Rock

Great job. I want to see the next one with inventor of the smoke signal.

Well done! Clever, timely, funny!

FWIW, I'm not 100% convinced that Dowd was intending to come off the way a lot of people interpreted it, though.

Excellent parody of Dowd's snarky interview with Ev and Biz. According to this article on SocialMediaToday http://www.socialmediatoday.com/SMC/88634# "Twitter now beats out the New York Times in terms of traffic."

I guess that explains why Maureen's got her panties in a bunch when it comes to Twitter.

And if she really would "rather be tied up to stakes in the Kalahari Desert, have honey poured over me and red ants eat out my eyes than open a Twitter account", I'm sure there are many offended Twitter users who would be happy to oblige her.

This is truly amazing!!! Who are you, wonderful person?

This really is a brilliant piece.

I've appreciated some of Dowd's musings, but her Twitter article was shockingly off base. As a parody, it's kinda funny, but a serious piece? No way!

Now, if her intention was to get lots of press around this. Mission accomplished :)

Terrific job!
