Apparently, I should be blacklisted on Planet Twitter by now... If you don't like what someone's tweeting about, you don't HAVE to follow them.

We don't need to know what you did in the bathroom 30 minutes ago... unless you did no2, then we need pics.

What about words like "honest"... did you make A honest mistake or AN honest mistake?

I would say that technically, h in a consonant, so A, though is sounds like it starts with a vowel, since the H is silent...

I agree with some of it, the other some of it I have to say has more credence than this article gives it. Maybe tweeting about your workouts has more to do with people supporting you and giving you more reason to continue working out than other things. Maybe you have lots of parents following you on twitter, why not tweet about children.

Just because you don't have an appreciation for that person's tweets doesn't mean that no one does.

But on the topic of things you should stop tweeting about:

1) what you eat (honestly I would be more interested in the size of your shits)
2) Twitter itself
3) Emotional Breakthroughs (talk to your mom, dad, sister, significant other, psychiatrist or psychologist, but don't we all know the internet is bad for this)
4) EVERY WEBSITE YOU GO TO. Look, if it is REALLY funny, tweet it. If you tweet more than 10 links in a day that contain the word youtube (Why aren't you shortening your URL's on twitter anyway?) I'm likely to never click any link you post.
5) Acronyms that you make up, or that are rarely used. If you can't fit it in 140 characters, you're doing it wrong

Well, fuck. If I can't tweet about food, my kids or my dog, I have very little left to tweet about. :cry2: God, my life is sad. Thanks, Mike. Now you've made me emo.

speaking of 10, i always wonder what my 'real' followers count would be. i.e. after taking away all the bots and companies and shit.

What? I said tweet about your kids, but I don't care about what you eat.

I just had a Big Mac for Lunch.

See how interesting that was?

I :wub: u B9, don't cut yourself. But if you do preferably do it somewhere that someone I'm following on Twitter will find you. Now THAT would be a good tweet, nothing like a good body on the floor update on twitter.

No worries. I could never really be emo. I can't tweet when I can't see the desk from all the hair hanging over my eyes. I'd have to be goth... and that would mean posting a bunch of sucky 'my life is a hell you don't understand', supposed-to-be-profound-but-aren't blurbs...

I am alone... I am utterly alone...

But that's on the Oatmeal forbidden tweets list, too.
