GAP Rallies Around Sikh Model After Ad Was Defaced By Racist Graffiti

GAP’s #MakeLove ad campaign features a variety of diverse models, including Sikh actor and designer Waris Ahluwalia, who appears in a simple, beautiful portrait with illustrator Quentin Jones next to the words “Make Love.” The image appeared on billboards and in NYC subway stations, where unfortunately, the sight of Ahluwalia’s turban inspired some dim-witted vandal…

#KanyeJobTitles Is The Internet’s Best Response To Kanye’s Latest Boast

Nope, not quite done talking about Kanye’s Big Day Out yet! One of the other notable quotes that came out of Kanye’s mouth yesterday, beyond all the gushing he did about Kim Kardashian, was when he, while telling Angie Martinez why he was dropping Nike and starting a partnership with Adidas, explained his intension to…

LeAnn Rimes Is In A Twitter Fight With Her Ex-Husband Over Gay Remarks

I don’t think LeAnn and Dean have spoken since their divorce, really, but the words they’re exchanging now aren’t all that friendly. Apparently LeAnn retweeted a photo of herself and Sheremet the other day, which the original poster had captioned: “Remember the good old days when @leannrimes was just a chubby country bumpkin married to a…

Join Us Tonight: We’re Live Tweeting Through “Nashville”!

For those of you who watched “Nashville” last week, you’re aware that they left us with the most shocking, WTF cliffhanger ever. I literally yelled “WHATTTT?!?” and paced around my living room for 20 minutes. And Lesbe honest…you probably did, too. (See what I did there?)

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

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!

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.

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

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 begi…

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…

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:

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…

Dating Don’ts: Social Media Etiquette For Every Stage Of Your Relationship

The rush that comes from infatuation is a drug as powerful and all-consuming as the sadness and white hot rage that follows a breakup. It is in these two extreme states that your desire to consume all you can about a person is at its highest. Through the sorcery of the internet, it’s all at…

This Sexist Flier Was Spotted In The Ladies’ Bathroom At Twitter’s Headquarters

Despite Twitter CEO Dick Costolo‘s best efforts to convince us that the company’s all-male, all-white board (and mostly all-male management team) isn’t an issue, this flier appeared in the women’s restroom at the Twitter’s offices in San Francisco today. Engineering Manager Jill Wetzler tweeted, what is most likely an invitation for some kind of Oktoberfest…

Did A Justin Bieber Fan Cut Off A Non-Belieber’s Hair And Post A Photo On Twitter?

We already know teenage pop fandom to be crazy, particularly in the contemporary cases of Beliebers and Directioners, but is it this crazy? Now, full disclaimer: nobody seems to know if this is real, but if it is … there may very well be no hope for the human race. Hardcore Belieber and Twitter enthusiast…
