The Joke's On Me

Yesterday, I stumbled upon an observation I thought was accurate. It seems the Jokers in the various iterations of Batman tend to depict their era's drug of choice. I shared this image in the tweet below. This is accurate. All the Jokers depict their era's drug of choice. pic.twitter.

Whose Tweet Is it, Anyway?

Following the Royal's extra innings win over the A's last night, Toronto Sun columnist Steve Simmons tweeted at Blue Jays all-star Jose Bautista. Usually, such rhetorical tweets don't get a reply from the athlete mentioned. This time, Joey Bats responded. Good for Bautista, right? I was one of over 1900

The Power of Now

Young people born into the internet age will never fully appreciate how crazy instant and borderless it all is. At 3:48pm, I received an email from a Caterina who found me after Googling for Arnold Lanni's email address. Arnold Lanni, who I first wrote about here, is a former

Top 10 Most Retweeted Tweets

Yeah, I like Twitter.  I used it daily throughout 2010, and if you use Twitter, you know how retweeting works.  If someone you follow tweets something you want to share with your followers, you retweet it. I'm not sure what my most retweeted tweet was in 2010.  It might have

Twitter Is Killing RSS Readers

I started "getting" Twitter back in November 2008.  I'm sure some of you beat me to the punch, but most of you probably strolled in after that date or still don't get it.  At the time, I wrote about Twitter as an RSS alternative. If you're following a publisher who

5 Funny People I Follow on Twitter

I follow 227 people on Twitter.  That number fluctuates as I experiment with finding the ideal balance.  Some people I follow because I know them in the real world, some people I follow because they're subject matter experts in subjects I care about, some people I follow because they're like-minded
