OMG, OMG! Twitter's Been Twaddled! OMFG!

If you didn't know about it, Twitter has apparently been the victim of a Denial of Service Attack.

Word is, this started around 9:00 a.m. I'm not exactly sure why, but I find it highly ironic that I didn't know anything about it until I saw it as a Breaking News story at the very beginning of the Local News at Noon. Bwahahahahaha!

Anyway, for those of you who are going through Twitter withdrawal, I present you with the latest important goings on at my restaurant, Soylent Green (in Restaurant City on FaceBook.)

I'm not on Twitter myself, but I have it on good authority that Poop News is an important staple there.

You're welcome!

I'm glad you said that about poop news. (I laughed)
I don't tweet, but sometimes I check on folks who read my blog to see what THEY are tweeting.

A couple of days ago I sent an email to a friend after he tweeted something to do with his bathroom experiences and told him I was OFFICIALLY not reading his tweets anymore. I thought it was a guy/girl thing...but no, other folks are on the TMI train too...

Why do people think it's fine to tweet something that's ok to say if you're three, but only when you're three and newly proud of your potty habits?

It just proves my theory that twitter is the work of beelzebub.
And that people are lemmings.

Resist the pull of twitter....

Let all thinking men and women untie or unite over resisting twitter...slogan: unless you're a bird, just say no to tweeting.

(I followed you home from Ken Levine's place...."hello")

Welcome Karen.

I don't Twitter my TMI...I save it all for here!

You know, I've also seen a spate of people using their cell phones what in the toilet. Didn't we make enough fun of these people back in the 90s?

For many years one of my guy friends would be talking to me on the phone and wander into the bathroom, do whatever...paperwork and all...

Me: dude, are you???
Him: Yeah, so?
Me: What are you thinking? oh wait, you're NOT thinking.
Him: It's a sharing exerience.
Me: Umm...we were roommates stoopid, been there done that.
Him: (FLUSH) And your point??
We now resume our regular conversation...

People take their phones in the restrooms all the time. Of course, I'll hear them talking and make sure I flush, several times, in the stall right beside them. Just so whoever is on the other end of their call knows exactly how important their call is. Because I'm helpful like that.

On your first topic, I think LiveJournal had denial of service issues this morning as well.

I love your annotated picture of your restaurant. :)

MWT said...

Ah, a picture of me and Anne working in your restaurant before you changed all our clothes. T.T

I didn't want you guys to be jealous of my bucket hat, so I gave one to all my employees!


MWT said...

Just for that, I'm going to fire one of mine, hire you, and give you a cheese hat!

And a skirt?

And donkey ears?
