Quote of the day: 'Social media is like teen sex'

While staying within Twitter's 140-character limit, Avinash Kaushik, a Web analytics guru at Google, makes his point and supports it. Good show!

Every once in a while, you read something on Twitter that's just pitch-perfect, despite (or maybe because of) the microblogging service's 140-character limit.

Today's honor is bestowed upon numbers guru and "Web Analytics: An Hour A Day" author Avinash Kaushik, currently employed as Google's analytics evangelist.

On Monday, he posted a total zinger, framing it as an "OH," or overheard, indicating that he wasn't the one who actually came up with the contents of the Twitter message (or "tweet") but didn't want to openly quote the person who actually said it.

"Social media is like teen sex," Kaushik tweeted. "Everyone wants to do it. No one actually knows how. When finally done, there is surprise it's not better."

Wham, bam, thank you ma'am. (Do you agree? Comment away!)
