‘Overheard On Twitter’ Friday

Okay, so I’m not promising that this is going to be a weekly thing or that it’s always going to appear on Fridays, but I’m doing it today. And it’s Friday. So welcome to Twitter Talk Friday! 🙂

I spend a lot of time monitoring the conversation on Twitter (and a very, very small period of time participating in it. Because I’m working. Hard. Hi, Jim!) and I’m noticing that it’s often the channel doing the best job breaking interesting news and breaking me into giggles.  Jim thought it might be fun to share some of the fun stuff I’ve come across, so here’s a list of all the tidbits I overheard on Twitter this week:

In fun Twitter Talk:

That’s what I learned on Twitter this week. What interesting or fun stuff did you find? And who are you following that I should add to my list?

    Eddy: I only mention real news. Not the news that exists only in Eric Lander’s pretty little head. 🙂
