The Daily What posted a TV News story about Twitter from 2007. It’s pretty funny to hear them try to decipher what it actually is. In the segment Robert Scoble is shown saying, “It’s stupid and lame and small.”
The Wendy’s twitter account tweeted, “Dubstep sounds like a broken Frosty machine.” I am not really familiar with much Dubstep music and I don’t know what a broken Frosty machine sounds like, but this still made me laugh.
Yesterday my friend Jonathan (who posts a new song everyday) wrote a song about shitty kids complaining about not getting iPhones, iPads, cars, etc. for Christmas. His song was inspired by Jon Hendren retweeting random kids complaining about their Christmas “disasters.” After listening to Jonathan’s song I got sucked into reading these tweets from, presumably, the shittiest kids on earth. Dear Terrible Teenagers, I hate you.
