Everyone needs good PR. Even Darth Vadar, the most evil bloke in the universe with a cloak and helmet head but no helmet hair. Whoever’s behind the Death Star PR Twitter account purports he or she is here to set things straight about the rubbish people say about the Galactic Empire, thus the ballistic tweets like ‘Anakin wasn’t trying to kill Obi-Wan on Mustafar.
That Can Be My Next Tweet! is a website that generates tweets based on words and phrases stripped from your Twitter account. When I tried it out, I was given the suggestion ‘Looking for a man?

The Curiosity Rover is on Twitter, and uh, this is where it gets tricky: its dyslexic clone is also on Twitter.

‘I used to be an unemployed twentysomething still living at home’, declares @KimJongNumberUn on his Twitter bio. ‘Now I have nuclear weapons. It’s all good, yo’. The faux Twitter feed of North Korea’s current supreme leader is voraciously updated with random tweets, most of which are quite epic.
Everyone’s on Twitter, and now it looks like the Universe has an account, too. Well, okay, it’s just the doing of some astute smartypants who has decided to troll unwitting tweeters who use the Universe’s name in vain with ERRATIC REPLIES IN BLARING LOUD CAPS. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

From the ‘what ever happened to’ files comes The Notificator, a short lived robot messenger which allowed users to leave direct messages for people in order to ‘cancel appointments or inform friends of their whereabouts’. To use The Notificator, which was installed in select locations in London in 1935, people would write a message on […]
Astute observations about life (‘Trying to explain what a harpsichord is to a worm. Waste of time”). Escapades that range from the banal (“Feeding gammon to a poorly falcon’) to the surreal (‘Sucking noodles off a whore’s pyjamas’). He’s a bit of a scallywag, this Gus. But you’ve got to love a fox with attitude.

Everyone loves to hate on Canadian pop rock group Nickelback’s tunes, so naturally, the Defensive Nickelback Fan had to stand up for them on Twitter.
