The covenant implicit in celebrity profiles is that the journalist is a proxy for the reader, not the subject. But in the thirst for exclusive access, the old rules get tossed by the wayside — ethics become inconvenient. Friendship should be a disqualifier, not a prerequisite.

It was an impression in the truest sense of the word — not an identical copy but a blend of heightened tics and imagined quirks that felt so true to the idea of a person that the real version paled by comparison.

The internet’s sin isn’t giving one or another person a mouthpiece with which to reach an audience with lies. It’s giving everyone the impression that they are owed an audience with anyone, with everyone else, at any time, or all the time.

For years now, I’ve been proposing metaphors to characterize the various iPhone generations. In the early days, as a gadget, the iPhone was like a toy dog: an accessory that took center stage, that users tended to and doted upon. Soon, the curiosity faded and the device became an obsession, like a cigarette. Eventually, the obsession normalized into ritual, and smartphones worked like a rosary, an amulet through which information flowed. Once the phone started to offer access to all information, it became a generic, blank window, a rectangle through which the entire universe can materialize.

Darwin’s method for making this decision would be recognizable to many of us today: He made a list of pros and cons. Under the heading “not marry” he noted the benefits of remaining a bachelor, including “conversation of clever men at clubs”; under “marry” he included “children (if it please God)” and “charms of music and female chitchat.”

There will be some thoughtful replies, but almost all of them will come from people I’m not friendly with. I’ll have no interest in debating them because I have no idea where they’re coming from, ideologically or rhetorically. Everyone who sees the tweet will see the replies, too, experiencing all sides of many arguments all at once, with no curation or indication of which is worth following. There will be nothing familiar or contextual about the conversation, just a bunch of strangers arguing with each other.
