Fake AP Stylebook Will Make You Laugh, Get You Fired

I’ve become slightly, nerdishly obsessed with the Twitter feed for Fake AP Stylebook. See, for us writer types, Associated Press style has been the grammar and spelling rulebook chasing at our heels ever since journalism school. The web has made certain AP style points archaic, but for the most part it’s still the copy editor’s Bible. However, the Fake AP Stylebook Twitter offers hilarious suggestions for the modern writer/blogger. Seven of my faves, after the jump… Keep reading »

Get More Followers With These Twitter-Themed Socks

Are you on Twitter and looking for more followers? Take your tweet campaign to the streets with these “Follow Me” knee-high socks created by Tel Aviv design team Gabby and Tal.

Miley Cyrus Fan Threatens To Eat Cat If Miley Cyrus Doesn’t Tweet Again, Stat

What is it about Miley Cyrus that attracts the hardcore looney toons? One fan is so upset about Miley shutting down her Twitter account that she is threatening to kill her cat Fuzzy, cook him, and eat him if Milz doesn’t reopen the account by Nov. 16. While I can’t seem to actually find said website (here’s hoping this is a hoax?), here’s what many blogs are quoting this girl as saying.

“Let me clarify: This is NOT a prank or a hoax. I am not joking, even if some will choose to interpret it that way. Cooking a cat is not illegal in my country, in fact it’s part of our culture. I’m not asking for money or any other benefit. Fuzzy is my cat and I will not entertain any offers of selling or giving him away. If Miley doesn’t tweet again, this WILL happen, and I’m as serious as a heart attack … Fuzzy’s life is hanging by a thread and will end if I do not achieve my goal. Ultimately, Miley is the only one who has the power to save Fuzzy.” [oceanUP.com]

Are Social Media Sites Like Twitter And Facebook Making Us Rude?

Last week, I had the pleasure of sipping Earl Grey at the Russian Tea Room while listening to Anna Post (Emily’s great-great-granddaughter) and anthropologist Genevieve Bell discuss etiquette as it pertains to technology. The event was hosted by Intel, which just completed a study on tech etiquette that shows that people believe there are unspoken rules when it comes to technology use, but we haven’t been able to agree on what those are.

Anna and Genevieve spoke to these differences in opinion, agreeing that we’re in a transitional period. There’s no clear-cut answer to the question, “Can I use my phone in the bathroom? just yet. Mobile devices and programs, like Facebook and Twitter, are still relatively new, and society needs a little more time to figure out how to be polite about using them. But Anna did share some advice. … Keep reading »

Twitter, The New Public Food Shaming Diet

You know how people say that being held accountable (to others, not just yourself, that is) actually helps weight loss? When you have to show up for a previously scheduled training appointment, you are way more apt to workout than if you just “try” to get to the gym every night. And when you head to, say, one of those Weight Watchers meetings, you are more likely to not overeat because once a week you have to face the music about your daily menus. Now, with the help of Twitter, some people are taking this accountability concept to the Nth degree—Tweet What You Eat, known to its users as twye, is the latest diet craze. The concept is simple: It’s an online food diary where you log absolutely everything you eat and drink. All you have to do is set up an account (or log in if you’re already on Twitter) and start tweeting away. The idea is that if you are forced to write down everything you put in your mouth, for all to see, you’ll think twice about eating that second (or third) slice of cake. Would you try out this online food diary? Or are you more private about your consumption? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
