Just ask Matthew Roberts, a 41-year-old Los Angelese DJ.
A record label executive was arrested for not Tweeting.
We're not talking about not pretending to be a bird, but rather for not posting a message on Twitter.

Rom Houben was conscious after a 1983 car crash, but no one knew it for decades.
In 1909, British explorer Ernest Shackleton aborted an attempt to reach the south pole. He abandoned two cases of scotch at base camp. A century later, we've found it.
Whyte & Mackay, the drinks group that now owns McKinlay and Co., has asked for a sample of the 100-year-old scotch for a series of tests that could decide whether to relaunch the now-defunct Scotch. Workers from New Zealand's Antarctic Heritage Trust will use special drills to reach the crates, frozen in Antarctic ice under the Nimrod Expedition hut near Cape Royds.
Thought discovered in 2006, conservation guidelines impose strict rules on how the ice-embedded bottles may be recovered. Whyte & Mackay's master blender says it will taste exactly as it did 100 years ago.

You take everything you do seriously, including recreation and hobbies.
You've probably become so good at your leisure-time activities, in fact, that your friends have suggested you take the show on the road.
If your present vocation hasn't turned out to be all it's cracked up to be, you might take those suggestions seriously -- especially if you're less than happy with your current situation.
At least examine the possibilities.
Food for thought.
