Try enjoying performance, instead of tweeting it

RE “LOCAL theaters ready to bow to tweeters in the audience’’ (Page A1, Dec. 28): People can’t wait to tweet until the end of a performance? Really? Eric Anderson, one of the people quoted in the article, says that “if something interesting or unique happened’’ in a performance, he might forget it later and not be able to share it with someone. With video cameras, cell phone cameras, and now tweets, people are missing the actual performances in order to record them or tweet about them. They should try enjoying the live performances as they happen.
