This post is for serious Twitter users, so others should feel free to check their Facebook pages.

Yeah, there's nothing serious about folks who use the phrase 'tweet'.  Sorry.

/you're not 'tweeting', you're posting.  It's nothing special or new, and certainly didn't require a new phrase.  So stop being a farking retard.
//yes, all of you.

If anyone is more stuck in the 1800s  than Republicans, it's English majors.

It was "whom to follow" 100 years ago, maybe 2. Considering language existed before English majors and will continue to exist after them, common usage wins again.

And another thing: myriad means "many of" or "lots of" so you don't say "myriad of", just "myriad".

Why would I want to follow someone - anyone - who rarely if ever tweets?

Uh... why would I want to follow someone who tweets 15 times a day?
I would rather follow someone who rarely tweets and only tweets things that are tweetworthy.

Also why do they call it Ovaltine?
The jar is round, the mug is round... they should call it Roundtine.

Why not? Is there some cost associated with it? When they tweet, you see it. When they don't, it's exactly the same as if you weren't following them. The better question is why follow someone who tweets constantly?

"Whom" is not a real word, subby. Was invented by English teachers to make everyone else feel dumb.

Like the words "thee" and "thou", "whom" is no longer part of the English language. Get over it.
