    So maybe you should be livetweeting all your meals.

    Anyone with a Twitter account knows that the first thing you do when you think you're about to get sick is tweet ad nauseum (no pun intended) about that oncoming flu or cold. Is it annoying to your followers? Probably. But it might also be helpful to researchers looking to track those diseases.

  4. So… The CIA Now Has a Twitter Account

    And you all LAUGHED at my tin foil iPhone cover.

    It's tough to be the CIA these days. At worst, you're a joke. At best, you're the washed-up spooks that everyone used to be afraid of before the NSA rolled in and made spying on innocent civilians into an art form.

    In other news, I'm having flashbacks to the GIF wars of 2013.

    Last month, the Twitter account for On The Media, an NPR-affiliated radio program and blog devoted to discussing current trends in media coverage, ran a tweet that contained the phrase "an @Guardian article."
