The article is followed by a link to a piece on Gil Scott Heron (who joined Wonder on tour when Bob Marley was hospitalized), and then some tweet-friendly MLK quotes; for me, the juxtaposition is jarring [some page-elements (comments) deleted for space]:

Twitter is not television, it’s not mass-media poured down our throats for passive consumption. Not originally, and not completely, not yet. But pre-packaged tweets like those that follow hardly seem to live up to GSH’s message.

That’s a damn good article. I just read it before I came here and saw it mentioned!
