you know, I don’t care if #retweetfail is evil, it’s more convenient than cutting and pasting manually #lazy
between NotAlwaysRight and clientsfromhell, the new trend is stupid-generated-content

OTOH, it’s a huge storm in a social-media teacup. Let’s try to do something constructive instead, hmmm? #retweetfail
