We have a collective Twitter account, though only a couple of us use it. While I'm not at all sold on Twitter as the replacement for blogging or other online interaction that its evangelists claim it can be, it is a nice way to obtain or share links and news on a rapidfire basis.
The people we follow, and who follow us, on Twitter tend to be of the same general makeup as this blog's readership: lawyers, geeks, and libertarians, some of them all three. Today being April 15, the libertarians are all atwitter (I slay myself) about this newfangled "Tea Party" movement, in which people take a day off of productive labor to protest against the progressive income tax. I'm quite skeptical of the "Tea Party" movement, just as I am of people who hold out the philosophies expressed in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged as a model for, well, anything.
But it has produced much unintentional comedy on Twitter:
More pics of a million tea bags
someone threw #teabags over the WH fence now parts of WH are in tmpry lockdown while Secret Service checks it out
You're going to love my teabags!
Need more teabags not more taxes!
Just stop it. I'm sorry teabaggers, but that word has been taken from you by the internet, and you cannot take it back.
