make tweets that make sense and not lots of hastag-y type things and RT's that make no sense unless you click on things.I HATE clicking.

I hope there are less bombs being dropped and I seriously hope there is a Superbowl being played next February...or else. Hear that NFL?!?!

No idea. I don't pay attention to detail. Like rules and/or suggestions of how to do things.
