So this morning Robin and I were sitting in Panera, joking around having a cup of joe. It’s a beautiful Sunday, the next thing we know we start rolling off metaphors. Joking around making famous lines, sort of twitterfied. Hmm twitterfy is that a new phrase? We replaced word(小号) in some famous lines from movies, songs, speeches or pop-culture sayings. Creating these metaphors was pretty fun. You should try it.
By no means is this a comprehensive list. Just something we had a lot of fun with this morning. Have something to add? We would love to hear your famous twitterfied lines. In 140 characters or less of course.

I doubted the usefulness until I started looking at what was making the service so successful. My first thoughts were that it’s just a fad. No, its not really a ‘”fad”, it’s actually useful. It enriches peoples lives. I feel that tweets are here to stay for some time.

The typical growing pains of a start up. Now it seems more robust and stable. I have not seen an error while updating in weeks. So what have I learned from the micro-blogging universe that is twitter? Read on…
