In order to handle the amounts of information we have access to, we’ve adapted to multitasking. There’s our generation that can tweet and watch a television show at the same time – or, in class, we sit and livetweet our readings, thus giving us two outlets to pay attention to. Multitasking is one of the only ways we can handle all of this networking at once. Because of this, literacy is changing. Literacy needs to be more focused on short rather than long narratives that its readers could drown in. We tweet with quick messages, instantly accessing the world to just about every idea and every subject imaginable. Because of that, longer texts are diminishing, leaving the world so that we no longer have the mental capacity to take on a daunting piece of writing.
