Want to keep MLB All-Star Game as a meaningful event? Don't tweet it

I'm changing dugouts, switching sides, calling a failed experiment for what it is.
I renounce my support for World Series home-field advantage being attached to the All-Star Game.
Twitter did it.
Not that I don't see value in Twitter. I do. Especially when Ozzie Guillen is at the control. For some reason, I love knowing that he loves shopping at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I was so sad when Guillen de-Twitter-ed. (Is that a word? It should be a word.)
Not that I'm anti social media. I'm on Facebook. I see its value. It allows us to learn things about our kids we'd never learn in a million years during dinner-table conversations ("So what about this party Friday night?" "I dunno." "Will Hannah's parents be home?" "I dunno." "Does Hannah even have parents, or did she hatch from a giant Slurpee cup?" "I dunno.").
