It's the last Y@ Speak of 2012, you guys! It's been a great year of tweakouts and Twitter fights, angry Saints tweets and NFL players saying hilarious things, celebrity sightings and overreacting to everything. While you all compose your mental list of ill-fated New Year's resolutions, might I suggest including some Twitter-related goals? Maybe try to get rid of: manual retweets (they are annoying and difficult for others to favorite or retweet those tweets for themselves, among other things), excessive use of hashtags ("Just saw a brass band on the street!! #OnlyinNola #nolalove #Blessed"), vomit-y game day tweets (except you, Chris Boudy. Keep doing you), and dumb corporate drivel in your bio like "retweets are not endorsements!" and "my thoughts are my own!" (as opposed to whose?) I would say to not fight or freak out on Twitter, but then it would be less enjoyable for me.
Anyway, happy New Year, and may you avoid falling bullets, falling drunk girls in sequined dresses and overpriced prix fixe menus!
