Anti Social Media

When we were at the Greek restaurant, I noticed something funny. The place is a small hole in the wall; there are maybe seats for 20 people, sitting cheek by jowl. The place is never full, though, from what I've observed. They do appear to offer catering services with a limited menu.

The funny thing is that they point out that you can follow them on Twitter and Facebook. Is that really necessary to follow a mom-and-pop Greek restaurant?

Baldo pointed out that they probably didn't tweet all that much.

I replied that Twitter probably has some upper limit on how many entities you can follow, like 2-to-the-32 (~4 billion), and that this restaurant would take up one of those valuable slots.
