Stolen?

Your tweet's too big

Don't want you 'cos your tweet's too big

Mad at you 'cos your tweet's too big

Stolen?

Twits.

it's not a matter of *CAN* you copyright twits, but that twits *ARE* copyrighten when you twit them. (seriously, how can anyone go from "twitter" to "tweet"... it's CLEARLY "twit").

Beh?

HuffPost has content?

Honestly, this site has never once given me even one piece of *newsworthy* news I hadn't already aggregated myself from the primary news sources. If I wanted somebody else's opinion on US-centric news, I'd read HuffPost. And watch Glenn Beck just for shits and giggles.
