Putting the twee in tweet APR 14 2009
McSweeney's explains Twitter. Finally!
Twitter seems to be, first and foremost, an online haven where teenagers making drugs can telegraph secret code words to arrange gang fights and orgies. It also functions as a vehicle for teasing peers until they commit suicide.
The McSweeney's Twitter account has never been updated but has 702 followers.
Update: McSweeney's official Twitter account is being updated but only has 439 followers. (thx, alex)
