Mostly it just looks ugly to me.

> a >> b.... b follows an a in sequence

Thanks to iostreams I would expect to see

   a << b << c

rather than

   a >> b >> c

which may be why it looks ugly to me.

That is, to get the string "abc" to output you would write

  cout << "a" << "b" << "c";

But of course this is very subjective, and it's your call.
