Finding, sharing, and creating witty content on Twitter remains the number one reason I stay on the site. Tweets that make me stop in my tracks to laugh out loud (or smile to myself, if I'm in a really boring meeting) get marked with that little "Favorite this tweet!" star. When someone I admire does the same for something I post, I become giddy. (No, really.)
I was going to talk about the importance of favoriting and the history of Twitter favorites, but you'll have to buy me a cupcake and clear an hour or two in your schedule if you really want to experience that monologue.
Instead, I present to you some favorite tweets from this month. Consider this my take on #FollowFriday, if you must.
"Buying four bananas at Walgreens is cheaper than buying three is the saddest thing I know."
"Jackie Chan is suspiciously good at words with friends. #cheatercheater #pumpkineater"
"I am in what can only be described as Shredder's Hideout."
"I took my child to work almost ten months ago, people. Is there seriously not a Take Your Child Back Home Day?"
"How come it's mostly random, creepy dudes adding me on Google+? What's up, ladies? You got better things to do than be creepy?"
"If you clean the office fridge, do not announce it in IRC as the hypocrites do. Amen I say to you, they have received their reward in full."
"I like my men the way I like my pizza: made of pizza."
"More like bidHEY"
"You're right, I SHOULD smile! Thanks for the great advice," said nobody, ever.
