" He may not have a Twitter of his own - yet - but everyone knows that Twitter is like a gateway drug to social media."
"Twitter fame is like being known for eating cat food at a party once. People pay attention to you but only because they think you're crazy."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
