  3. Cats Get Their Own Social Network. Unrelated: Facebook Loses 1 Million Accounts On Same Day.

    the internet is serious business

    Mittens Status Update: Owners are being huge jerks today. Wanted savory salmon, they gave me gourmet turkey. Again. Reply from Mr. Jingles: Bite their toes. If that doesn't work, throw up the salmon in their favorite shoes. Reply from Mittens: LOLZ. I'm glad we're friends. But seriously, cats now have their own social networking website. It's called Catmoji.

  4. Ironic: Facebook’s New Privacy Settings Cause Mark Zuckerberg’s Sister’s Private Photo To Go Public

    And That's Terrible

    I'm not sure anyone I know is truly happy with their privacy settings on Facebook. Either they don't understand them or, if they do, they find them unsatisfactory. Yet we all keep using the free social networking website. But oddly enough, the site's privacy settings recently caused some strife in founder Mark Zuckerberg's family. One of his sister's photos was posted publicly online even though she thought it was set to private.

  8. Real Birds Tweet With Their Own Twitter Account, Are More Interesting Than You [VIDEO]

    Don't Try This At Home

    When we first got my cat Dewey, he had a tendency to walk on my keyboard. I was surprised one day to find replies to my twitter stream asking if I was OK. Turns out, Dewey had sent a tweet on my behalf of complete gibberish thanks to me leaving Tweetdeck open. And it wouldn't be the last time. But conceptual artist  Voldemars Dudums decided to let some animals tweet on purpose, namely birds. Which couldn't be more perfect considering Twitter's mascot. How did he do it? He set up a Twitter account for them, @hungry_birds, and rigged a keyboard with snacks of pork fat. They now have over 5,000 followers. Watch them in action but make sure to pay attention to what Dudums says near the end of the video about the rest of us Twitter users. You can learn more at BirdsOnTwitter.com.

Libel laws and the like in the U.K. tend to receive a lot of flak from the Internet, and perhaps there's a perfectly legitimate reason for this. These laws have wacky consequences and serve as another way to stifle free speech more often than not. For example, a man was "arrested on suspicion of malicious telecommunications" this past Sunday. His alleged crime? Posting a photo of a burning poppy to a social network.
