Why You Need Proper Punctuation

25 Mar

Though I should probably not be the one heaving stones, here an example of horrible punctuation.

Sen. Chuck Grassley: I suppose this isn’t so much an egregious error as embarrassing for a U.S. Senator to be communicating this way. Grassley gets credit for using Twitter effectively for someone his age (79). However, he seems bogged down by the character limit and sometimes his message gets really lost. Like this tweet, for example.

Now, what does any of that mean? Or this one?

Anyways, Grassley took to Twitter yesterday to tell people to stop whining. I think shorter, multiple messages are more effective than these endless abbreviations that drive everyone nuts trying to decipher.
