Comedy-Video, das aber genau das Problem mit Twitter und anderen Social Network Apps zeigt: man steht mit allem was man sagt in der Öffentlichkeit
What would real life Twitter look like? A funny video - though showing how Twitter is used only for personal use.
Nette Idee Twitter auf diese Weie einmal zu visualisieren ... nett auch der letzte Tweet: "Standing next to the hottest girl ever, but I'm too terrified to say anything."

sarahtales: Star Trek Parody
I know you (used?) to read bad fan-fic. This is a very-very condensed run-down of the recent Star Trek movie, delivered in one-liners. And pretty damned funny. :^)
Laugh-out-loud take on the film. Brilliant from start to finish. To wit: Never go in against a Vulcan when kink is on the line.
A parody of the newest Star Trek movie, by Sarah Rees Brennan. (aka Mistful in the HP fandom) Mentions of Kirk/Spock, kinda.
SPOCK: You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. Never go in against a Vulcan when kink is on the line.
'KIRK: I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the screams of 'I'm fabulous! I'm fabulous!' IN MY OWN HEAD.'
UHURA: I seem not to be assigned to the Enterprise. Please correct this error. SPOCK: Well, I didn't... UHURA: You know my qualifications. MA in advanced linguistics. PhD in badass. SPOCK: So I'll just be correcting that error, then. UHURA: That's what I thought. SPOCK: It is a perfectly logical decision on my part to be totally whipped.

Two Gentlemen of Lebowski
WALTER In sooth, then, faithful friend, this was a rug of value? Thou wouldst call it not a rug among ordinary rugs, but a rug of purpose? A star in a firmament, in step with the fashion alike to the Whitsun morris-dance? A worthy rug, a rug of consequence, sir? THE KNAVE It was of consequence, I should think; verily, it tied the room together, gather’d its qualities as the sweet lovers’ spring grass doth the morning dew or the rough scythe the first of autumn harvests. It sat between the four sides of the room, making substance of a square, respecting each wall in equal harmony, in geometer’s cap; a great reckoning in a little room. Verily, it transform’d the room from the space between four walls presented, to the harbour of a man’s monarchy.
What if William Shakespeare wrote The Big Lebowski?
Too funny.
The C Programming Language: 4.10
4.10 Recursion
Similar to 'Pride and Prejudice and Vampires', here is an adaptation of a famous book in the computer science canon, rewritten in the style of H.P. Lovecraft, specifically 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth' (which I'm coincidentally also reading on my iPhone).
I never heard of C Recursion till the day before I saw it for the first and– so far– last time. They told me the steam train was the thing to take to Arkham; and it was only at the station ticket-office, when I demurred at the high fare, that I learned about C Recursion. The shrewd-faced agent, whose speech shewed him to be no local man, made a suggestion that none of my other informants had offered. "You could take that old bus, I suppose," he said with a certain hesitation. "It runs through C Recursion, so the people don't like it. I never seen more'n two or three people on it– nobody but them C folks."

This is the title of a typical incendiary blog post - Coyote Crossing
'This sentence contains a provocative statement that attracts the readers’ attention, but really only has very little to do with the topic of the blog post. This sentence claims to follow logically from the first sentence, though the connection is actually rather tenuous. This sentence claims that very few people are willing to admit the obvious inference of the last two sentences, with an implication that the reader is not one of those very few people. This sentence expresses the unwillingness of the writer to be silenced despite going against the popular wisdom. This sentence is a sort of drum roll, preparing the reader for the shocking truth to be contained in the next sentence. This sentence contains the thesis of the blog post, a trite and obvious statement cast as a dazzling and controversial insight.'

parody of Maureen Dowd's Twitter interview - great!
"I sat down with Mr. Bell, 39, and his assistant Thomas Watson, 22, and asked them to explain why they shouldn't be condemned to a slow, painful death. ME: The telephone seems like letter-writing without the paper and pen. Is there any message that can't wait for a passenger pigeon? BELL: Possibly the message I'd like to deliver to you right now. ME: Did you know you were designing a toy for bored housewives and the indolent rich? BELL: Actually, I was trying to help deaf people."
"ME: I would rather be flayed alive and gradually guillotined than use a telephone."
