Pablo Picasso's Neverending Flame War

I can't help but wonder how much great literature, satire, and art of our era will never come to pass because her authors have wasted themselves upon the rocky shores of one Twitter storm after another. Can you image if Picasso had, rather than painting Guernica, instead used his considerable energies to debate with complete strangers, 140-characters to a retort, for hours on end? This is exactly what a lot of our better creative types have taken to anymore, and I have no doubt we all suffer for it.

You do you, by all means, unless your name is Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso, in which case, you'd do all us a great service by logging off and getting into the studio.
