If you do the Twitter thing, you know that any given tweet lasts about 10 seconds before it disappears into the ether like a Jennifer Lopez movie. Every once in a while I gather up a bunch of tweets and give them a second life here on the blog because I just can’t bear to see them go.
Here’s a batch I thought you might get a kick out of. If you have a Twitter account, you can find me here: @IBecameMyDad. If not, you might want to have a look at this handy guide on how to read a tweet; it’ll help you make sense of all those RTs and hashtag thingies.

Tweets for tweeters and bloggers:
Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach; those who can’t teach blog about it.
This just in: Twitter experienced a temporary black out. The GDP of 100 countries spiked to an all-time high.
