Guy Live Tweets Couple's Breakup On Brooklyn Rooftop -- And It's Awesome

Brooklyn-based writer and comic Kyle Ayers was minding his own business, enjoying the view from his rooftop with some friends, when a couple arrived and proceeded to breakup in front of everyone. So Kyle took to Twitter, as one does. ”A couple is breaking up on my roof right now,” he tweeted Saturday evening. “I was just trying to enjoy the view. Now I will live tweet the breakup.” I will allow the Storify of his exhaustive tweet session speak for itself, because it is hilarious… Keep reading »

This Couple Broadcasts All Their Fights On Twitter — Brilliant Idea Or Horrible Idea?

Twitter Relationship Fights

When I first started to read the New York Magazine article about a couple from Chicago that broadcasted all their fights on Twitter, I was skeptical. I thought: Ugh attention whores! They’re as bad as the junior high couples on Facebook who writes passive-aggressive comments about each other. Get over yourselves! Check out some of their most hilarious and also relatable tweets on College Candy…

12 Signs You're Suffering From Twitter Burnout

Twitter burnout is among us. With the company going public to potential investors last week, Twitter Burnout Syndrome (yes, I just coined that myself) is an actual financial concern. People have a history of getting overwhelmed by the site’s tendency to dominate their lives and taking a hiatus; sometimes even signing off forever. Even celebrities are susceptible. The likes of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Megan Fox and Alec Baldwin have dropped off the site’s grid and left their masses of followers hanging at one time or another.

John Mayer says the reason he deleted his Twitter account in 2011 is that the site had taken up so much of his brainpower that he couldn’t write songs (sorry, can we just LOL over that for a moment please?). With 500 million tweets shared each day, the whole thing can start to feel like a pretty big headache. Below, signs that you are suffering from Twitter Burnout Syndrome and need to take a little break.

Kylie Jenner Sparks Twitter Frenzy Over Her Misuse Of The Term “Bipolar”

Kylie Jenner

The kombined Kardashian-Jenner klan is famous (“famous”) for lots of things (or, rather, one thing that has splintered off into lots of things): multiple revealing reality television shows, media ubiquity, 72-day marriages, explicit discussion and occasional tasting of bodily fluids, giving birth on camera … you get it. Not one of these things even begins to imply that they are known for any intellectual capacity or emotional sensitivity. Sure, they’re “smart,” in the same way someone like Miley Cyrus is smart — they know how to keep their names in the headlines. (Or their mother does, at least.)

So that’s why it’s depressing, but not at all surprising, that Kylie Jenner went ahead and stirred up some controversy of her own on the Twitters yesterday, posting an old photo of herself with a past hair color with the caption, “I miss my black hair I’m so bipolar :( .” :(, indeed, because girl, YOU ARE NOT BIPOLAR. I can’t even begin to describe the idiocy of this type of misuse of a word — changing your mind about something does not, I repeat, does not a bipolar person make. But hey, on the bright(er) side, at least she acknowledges that bipolar disorder exists, unlike her boyfriend Jaden Smith‘s family. Ain’t nothing Xenu can’t cure! (And no, they still have yet to pinpoint a medical term to describe whatever is amiss with Kris Jenner.) [Gossip Cop]

Horrible Rape Joke Goes Viral On Twitter

This. This is an example of a not funny rape joke. And yet it’s one that many, many people have posted or retweeted on Twitter, without criticism, thereby lending their tacit approval of the statement that rape is somehow flattering. The Tumblr blog Fucking Rape Culture is keeping a list of all those who tweeted the joke without calling out its offensiveness, writing, “none of these people will mind at all if you hit them in the face with a spade; after all, it’s flattering that you’re risking jail to hit them (or possibly kill them…).” That post has over 118,000 notes on it, so that’s one reason not to give up all hope for humanity.

The Vatican Had No Idea Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” Was About Heroin

Gianfranco Cardinal Ravasi, the Vatican’s culture minister, was trying to do a solid by tweeting lyrics from the Lou Reed song “Perfect Day,” as a tribute to the late singer who passed away this weekend. You can see how it would be easy to mistake the lyrics for a simple love song:

Oh, it’s such a perfect day/I’m glad I spent it with you/Oh, such a perfect day/You just keep me hanging on.

Tweeting Bra Lets Your Followers Know Every Time It’s Unclasped

Tweeting Bra Lets Your Followers Know Every Time It's Unclasped
What Would Your Tits Tweet?

If your tits could tweet, what would they say? Well, now you can kind of, sort of, find out – OgilvyOne Athens has created a bra that tweets every time it’s unclasped, giving your special list of followers a heads up that you’re free-boobin’ it. The thing is, 99 percent of the time that I take my bra off, it’s to do something boring, like pass out topless in bed, alone, while eating a Talenti ice cream bar. Anyway, the truth is, the tweeting bra isn’t available to the public, but it is being used by a Greek actress for the next few weeks, and her tits tweet a link to the Nestlé Fitness website, which offers tips on how to do a breast self-exam. Definitely a more worthwhile message than “Right now, Amelia is cupping her bare right boob while watching ‘Scandal.’” [Ad Week]

The Best Of The #MensRightsMovies Twitter Hashtag

I love reading about how clever trending hashtags are born. The Daily Dot has a post about the currently trending #MensRightsMovies hashtag, which was born out Aaminah Khan‘s punning tweet about bronies, above. The hashtag took off almost instantly, with hundreds of others contributing their own hilarious anti-woman/anti-feminist/pro-MRA spins on popular movie titles. Check out some of our faves, after the jump! [The Daily Dot] Keep reading »

Regret what you did last night? Well that’s rough. Imagine how much rougher it would be if your whole college campus could see a play-by-play of it on the Internet. Welcome to Fordham University’s  ”Gossip Girl”-like Twitter account, FU_Makeouts, which documents students’ hook-ups for their classmates to see. Students are encouraged to “embarrass your friends” by submitting pics of Fordham students making out in public (a typical example is above). It’s a pretty funny idea, and very popular, but is it okay? Is FU_Makeouts hurtful or is it just in good fun? Keep reading »

Rashida Jones To Other Female Stars: “Stop Acting Like Whores”

  • Rashida Jones, who is not usually one to court controversy, tweeted that she wishes her fellow female entertainers would “stop acting like whores” and she’s tired that “she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popluar.” She then backtracked with another tweet, “Let me clarify. I don’t shame anyone for anything they choose to do with their lives or bodies, but I think we all need to take a look at what we are accepting as the norm.” I don’t disagree with Rashida, but shame on her for calling other women ‘whores.’  [US Weekly]
