Since the United States Postal Service made their announcement Wednesday morning that Saturday delivery service for first-class mail would come to a screeching halt, social media has had time to talk -- and, as expected, they have questions. Will my Netflix DVDs stop arriving on Saturdays? Will I get less junk mail now? If I write a letter to Santa Claus, will he get it in time?
For some, it had no effect at all on their day-to-day, and a few considered that it could end up being a good thing.
No more Saturday delivery for USPS. That's one less of fliers, ads, and bills bein jammed in my mail box.

Others were concerned about how it could affect their packed social dancecard (read: Netflix disc delivery).

Thanks to both the USPS news and the Star Wars spinoffs news, some people were convinced that we could look forward to seeing our favorite scoundrel at the local post office any day now.
From the Twitter trends list, I gather that Han Solo has gone to work for the USPS. Congratulations, Han!

Rather than waste time on disappointment, some headed straight into comedic territory (and oh, there are so many jokes waiting to happen there).
UPS ~ Moving at the speed of business. USPS ~ Moving at the speed of Paul Revere.

Considering that this drastic move may significantly help the post office, we're hoping for the best, but it sure does put the glimmer of an all-electronic world in the back of your mind.
