Cleaver Greene is probably my new role model.

via Janetter for Mac

Well that’s an excellent idea, @Pollytics. I’m happy to act as anyone’s Life Coach for a moderate fee.

The number of hashtagged normal sentence words in a tweet is a rough proxy measure for fuckwittedness.

@LovesagoodRant And I wasn’t wearing a tracksuit, so there’s something.

@LovesagoodRant Well yes, every round I fired that day, with the Browning 9mm, M4 carbine, or FN SCAR-H assault rifle, hit the target.

@oberonsghost Also, regexp as feminine makes sense. Complex, mysterious, understood by few mortal men.

I see that once more Janetter and Twitter have conspired to hide 25% of people’s tweets. @AppDotNet looks ever more appealing.

Prohairetic Australia lives in a delusional bubble in which the Sydney protests and the Festival of Dangerous Ideas are seen as significant things.

Yet @twitter is happy to wave the “tweets belong to users” card when it suits them, to be seen as progressive supporters of free speech.

via Janetter for Mac

The hypocrisy is that @twitter is fine with sucking in YOUR content from elsewhere, just not YOU posting YOUR content how YOU want.
