Twitter homepage parody

I am sure you know about Twitter, but let me shortly describe it for those who never heard about it. Twitter is basically a micro-blogging service that allows users to send “tweets” (text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) to Twitter website, via SMS, instant messaging, or a third-party application such as Twitterrific or Facebook. Updates are displayed on the user’s profile page and instantly delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them via the Twitter website, instant messaging, SMS, RSS, email or through an application.

This is all great, but there is a tendency for Twitter to become overwhelming and annoying, if misused. I’m telling you, I have nightmares of drowning in millions of tweets sent by my friends. Also, I am afraid of becoming obsessive and start writing about each and every thing happening in my life…I just eat a banana….I just updated my Twitter page…..I just typed a letter A and a dot. You know, something like James Joyce on Twitter. There are actually people who do this, but there are also those who are using Twitter in smart ways and for good causes. I will be blogging about this soon in more depth, but until then I made a little parody regarding the Twitter homepage, more precisely the part where they explain why you should use their service.

Here is the actual screen shot of the Twitter homepage.

And here is my version of the Twitter homepage.

Hope you like my version better, and by the way, can somebody show me the research demonstrating that moms want to know that you are eating soup.
