    i’m waiting for Shitter, your laptop makes little wet-farting sounds of all the puerile ideas that come up to waste your existence ‘laughing’ about

    Clearly you’ve never been to the Apple App store.

    iFart (and it’s derivatives) abound!

    Buddy, Is there even one 140-character sentence in F.W.?

    It makes one wonder why Odysseus didn’t just open a new tab and go to Google maps instead of spending all his time on Twitter.

  6. Takuan says:

    lots. Every 140 characters.

    I think I hate hearing about twitter more than Michael Vick or Brett Favre at this point. Come on world, you can dumb yourself down a little more!

    Cute and clever, but a little too much with the lolspeak.

    Isn’t that kind of the point?

    What do you mean, ‘if?’ – Let’s put it on Twitter!

    This whole [classic work of literature|historical event] but on [Twitter|Facebook|World of Warcraft] thing is getting really old.

    How about MySpace Status and Mood Updates – as they would appear on Twitter?

    This isn’t improving my opinion of twitter in the slightest.

    As much as I like seeing classical literature being raped like Lucretia, this is stunningly tasteless and moronic.

    I’m now going to douse my eyes with lye, to remove that screenshot.

    Is it Twitter’s turn for Hate-Week?

    Why was my comment deleted? For not enjoying this as everyone else apparently does? What backward moderating!

      Rampnat,

      Your comment wasn’t deleted. It was in the pending queue because you weren’t signed in and I haven’t had electricity for fourteen hours and, if you hadn’t noticed, we just had a big system upgrade and half the comments aren’t making it through. But if you want to feel persecuted, don’t let me stop you.

    Scroll to the top of any page, click “Moderation Policy”. Happy reading. Enjoy the ice cream.

    You can read Moby Dick in it’s entirety on twitter at twitter.com/publicdomain. Next up will be Alice in Wonderland, which is likely very well suited to the format.
