    "My uncle made $300 a day working from home! Learn-" Mark as spam.

    Every time you write a post complaining about how awful Facebook is, remember that Facebook is lining its pockets with the money your whining is making it. If new social networks have anything to say about it, and if they can overcome Facebook's staggering ubiquity, you may soon have a way to make sure you're the one profiting off that viral video of you getting kicked in the pants or whatever.

    On a more serious note, #YOLO #swag.

    Today Facebook edged in on Twitter's territory, and began supporting the use of searchable hashtags in order to help sort conversations by topic.

Whoever is running the account certainly has the Bradshaw voice down but it's great imagining Kim Cattrall as her Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country character Lt. Valeris. I'm assuming the girls have somehow fashionized the regular Starfleet uniforms. Check out some of our favorite tweets and see how easily space explorations fits with sex talk. (via io9)
