Beware Jogging And Tweeting At The Same Time

Perhaps China is right to ban Twitter, not because of censorship, but because the 140-character-microblogathingy-service is dangerous. Just ask James Coleman, a well-to-do 23-year-old, the latest victim in Twitter's quest to establish its world peril. And look how innocent: A penchant for exercise was his only crime.

Coleman was minding his own business Friday, tweeting his innermost thoughts to the world while jogging to work, when the Tweeter guided his face directly into a tree's low-hanging branch, deposited him to the ground and left him with a black eye. The branch, he said, came out of nowhere.

"I guess you could say I feel a right Twit," he said.
