We are living in the age of the overpopulated internet. The information we receive is mostly useless. The brilliance of twitter is that it limits such trash to 140 symbols per "serving". So does tumblr and other popular online services.

However, this also makes users attached to scrolling through the trash generated by many various people because these messages differ from each other in style, in topic, etc.

This in turn makes people less capable of thoughtful reading. They can't keep their attention throughout a long article. They would rather believe a short list of "facts" if it has one or two links to some lengthy paper. Even if original research actually contradict those points, no one is going to check.
