As Twitter continues is systemic destruction of the English language, the entity is sucking in the masses like some sort of evil vortex – so don’t drink the Kool-Aid or eat the McInformation.
A prime target this year was the World Cup, with substantial collateral damage done as it felled both the big boy, the tournament itself, as well as vuvuzelas and Paul the Octopus, all of which crashed the 2010 Twitter Top 10.
Well at least we finally know what killed that lovable cephalopod: the internet.
Normally these things are more celebratory, but this reads like a Just… Continue reading
