Do we really need to give people the ability to Twitter on the road using voice-recognition commands?
I mean, it’s already bad enough that many drivers are distracted while talking on their cell phones or checking their Blackberrys or iPhones for new e-mail. The worst offenders are SUV drivers who thinking nothing about driving over-sized vehicles, and not paying attention to pedestrians, bicyclists and other cars.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge Twitter fan but a line in the sand needs to be drawn about where and when you do should do it.
With Twitter available on a growing number of mobile devices, people are Twittering everywhere and anywhere about anything. As using Twitter becomes easier, many people are becoming less discerning about their updates to point where it’s just white noise.
With Twitter becoming available to drivers, the noise is going to get even worse as people looking for ways to kill time while commuting. Of course, they’re also going to be paying less attention, which means the road are going to get a lot more dangerous.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
