Life becomes more meaningful when someone from a long way away reflects your own thoughts.

I was, therefore, lifted to heights previously unimagined on hearing that the head of Saudi Arabia’s religious police has declared that Twitter is an appalling waste of time, mind, and soul.

Actually, it’s worse than that.

As the BBC reports [2], Sheikh Abdul Latif Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh mused that anyone who uses Twitter “has lost this world and his afterlife.”

It may well be that the Sheikh’s biggest concern is that so many of his people are now enthusiastically posting uncensored thoughts on Twitter. Saudi Arabia is said to be the fastest-growing tweeting nation [3].
