#theakwardmomentwhen knowing that it became funny a worldwide trending topic and was spelt incorrectly. Boy thats awkward.

Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
@sarcasm
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
"i typ lk ths cuz im kl" No you type like that because you failed English and need a ticket back to High School.

Twitter how do you expect me to remember all my activity? I can't even remember the last place I was. #fail

Daily conversations or random things said for example a thought "Hmm.. That sounds a little harsh.. I'll put 'haha' on the end."

Overnight, I mean come on thats got to count! 8.5 hours to be precise!

Death rumors, they make big misconceptions, death should be broken on CNN not Twitter. Actually Twitter needs their own News.

I look at the trends and think of weird humorous things to write, after all I am fluent in 3 languages, English, sarcasm and Profanity.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Because I was fed of Facebook asking me "Whats on your mind?" I prefer "Whats happening" sounds a lot more hip.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I learned... never judge the twitter user by its profile picture, unless its a picture of a car in which case their clearly a transformer.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Spell trending topics correctly on Twitter or use their time wisely...wait what?
How will the world change in the next year?
Well its supposed to be 2012, but my Maggie noodles don't expire until 2013 so what am I supposed to think?
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
When people say they "i typ lk dis cuz im kl"..I say no you type like that because you fail English.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
The world will be full of Tweets in fact maybe in 10 years time people will be sending each other telepathic messages instead of tweets.
