Celebrity Chimes In: "Twitter Erodes English"

At the risk of beating this topic to death, I found it interesting how more and more people are weighing in on the side of Twitter is evil:
 “This could be viewed as regrettable, as there are some great descriptive words that are being lost and these words would make our everyday language much more colourful and fun if we were to use them.
“But it’s only natural that with people trying to fit as much information in 140 characters that words are getting shortened and are even becoming redundant as a result.”
Ralph Fiennes thinks Twitter (and other things, as explained in this article) is working against the language. What do you think?
