Allways prufrede, Twitter edition

Twitter allows you to share your life, 140 characters at a time. If you haven’t joined the social media service yet, take heart that there are tweeters on there who are waay behind you.

BuzzFeed, which calls itself the purveyor of “the hottest, most social content on the web,” has compiled a wickedly funny list of “The Top 10 Most Unforgivable Twitter Spelling Mistakes.”

Needless to say, some tweeters need to fight their auto-correct function or at least to proofread before posting. Or if this is how they really spell, maybe you’re not missing much by avoiding Twitter.

There are folks who call on angles for divine help and those who rail against the bad manors of others or against hippocrates (posers, not the Greek guy). Some high school tweeters can’t wait to go to collage. There is at least one entry I won’t repeat in a family blog.

And items #2 and #1 are guaranteed to give you a laugh you’ll want to share with others all day long. This stuff just writes itself.
