Manchester United considering new Twitter rules – ESPN

“I don’t understand it to be honest with you,” the 69-year-old manager said of Twitter. “I don’t know why anybody can be bothered with that kind of stuff. How do you find the time to do that? There are a million things you can do in your life without that.

“Get yourself down to the library and read a book. Seriously. It is a waste of time. It seems to have a certain momentum at the moment. Everyone seems to want to do it.”

I think this quote is great, and really shows how many people that are older look at social media. I think that this will end up being a no issue, but the battle between social media and established traditional organizations is only getting started.. some will embrace, and others like we see here will be confused and try to corral and control.
