What doesn't make sense is the President of the USA tweeting at 6:30 am 
in the morning in his characteristically unhinged manner without doing 
what you'd expect the most powerful head of state in the world to do: 
order the assumed perpetrators to come to the oval office and give a 
full accounting of the snooping.

That, of course, is the problem with Twitter. It is a medium that defies 
lucid exchanges of ideas or analysis. It is the reason I only use it as 
an automatic crossposting of my blog articles. It is also the reason 
that Steven Salaita and George Ciccariello-Maher got into trouble.

It is also the reason that Trump uses it obsessively. It allows him to 
make these single sentence provocations that are the equivalent of a 
spitball. That's American capitalism in its senescence for you.
