Twitter ‘evil,’ cause of ‘moral and social devastation’?

No more than general lack of saneness in societies that accept “social media.” Hey, I can sort-of agree with Sheik Abdul Aziz al-Sheik.

‘Saudi Grand Mufti Against Twitter as Source of All Evil and Lies’

Riyadh (AsiaNews/Agencies) - Twitter is nothing more than "a source of lies" and evil, said Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh, Saudi Arabia's top Muslim cleric, on his popular 'Fatwa' (religious edict) television show, sparking a lively debate across the country between those his supporters and critics.

"If it were used correctly," the sheikh said, "it could be of real benefit, but unfortunately it's exploited for trivial matters".

Indeed, Twitter is "the source of all evil and devastation", the mufti said. "People are rushing to it thinking it's a source of credible information but it's a source of lies and falsehood."
