  1. Good God, that hurt to read. And I’m their target demo! Two notes about this:

    1. Great April Fool’s joke about the Guardian (UK) going all-Twitter, including re-writing its news archive.
    “OMG Hitler invades Poland, allies declare war see tinyurl.com/b5x6e for more”; and “JFK assassin8d @ Dallas, def. heard second gunshot from grassy knoll WTF?”

    2. Rumors surfaced late yesterday that Google is in late-stage negotiations to acquire Twitter. Rumored price: $250 million in cash and stock. No linky because my comment probably would not go through with two links, but it’s on TechCrunch

    @3: For 72, that guy is pretty in touch with the toys of “kids these days.”

    This may be your best post!

    Please don’t ever post something like that again. Some people still enjoy actually reading words, not deciphering them.

    Michael Davis is Dwaine Caraway’s Gollum, or he could be Dwaine’s punk. Sometimes, it’s hard to tell.

    Dallas is for developers.

  13. Sway says:

    I went to school with Quattlebaum….he wasn’t so level headed then.

  14. Bethany says:

    Ok, I just want to kvetch about this for a second. Why do we have to make the these ballot measures so freakin’ confusing?

    Vote yes if you don’t want it. Vote no if you do. Seriously – who thinks this is a good idea?

  15. Kristiana Heap says:

    @Becca: Exactly. Thank you.

    Stp, u crl bstrd.

  17. Tim Rogers says:

    Saying nice things about Eric pains me. But I thought Leading Off was inspired today.

  18. Amy A says:

    IMHO this was fun. It’s Friday, IJS.

  19. Casie Pierce says:

    Wow, do people who use twitter really communicate like this??? I have an account and get emails from people “following” me, but I mostly just stare at it from a safe distance and sometimes get up close enough to poke it with a stick.
