So dramatic.
It was a joke, but an accurate one. Don't you have nine threads to start about your latest everyday discoveries, like amazing things you've found in your navel?
But that's why we have Twitter. So that you don't have to start worrying about everyone posting threads in Misc. about their favourite toilet experiences.
Come now, you all know you enjoyed my colon thread.

You'll all have noticed the little blue bird thing that has invaded the right hand side of the BBS.

Frame disruptions aside, I like the little bird. We should start a contest to name the bird we've come to claim as our own.

Any suggestions?
Fat real-estate eating bitch.
Too many syllables.
It's OK, the column's wide enough to fit the full name in now.

So is that what people mean when they say they're "Tweeting"? Taking a big ole' text birdshit on the shiny new car that is the internet.

I'll do a full cavity search and get back to you with my findings.
And by any chance is this cavity search taking place at where you work?
I knew it was you all along.

They can also describe their breakfast at the same time. Shredded Tweet.




Hmmm... "Shredded Tweet". Now THAT's a name.

The bird needs to go. Let's not name it, let's shun it.

Poor old bird, it comes along at the same time the column widens and 2 + 2 = 5!

But I do look forward to seein what the name turns out to be.

Re: TrekBBS Contest: Name the Twitter Bird!

We (well, most of us) understand that the bird isn't causing the wider right column, but due to the timing it is a convenient scapegoat... err, scapebird for our displeasure with the change.

The newly expanded right column really does jack up the main portion of the board for a lot of people, though.

So does that mean the bird's name is Emmanuel Goldstein?
