Looks like Dawkins is a little concerned about what he has done to his reputation:
I'm really as polite as my books. Twitter brevity forces you straight to the point, which can sound aggressive. #NuancedPolitenessImplicit

Twitter makes him do it! If “Twitter brevity” is the problem, someone should inform Dawkins about the existence of something called a “blog.” But then again…..
And it isn't just the faith-heads. The faitheist "I'm-an-atheist-but-heads" use same tactics, for they AGREE there are no counter-arguments.

Does Dawkins refer to the religious as “faith-heads” in his book? Or did Twitter Make Him Tweet like this?
religious: 9 characters
faith-heads: 11 characters
