The fact people are so addicted to twitter they keep tweeting after learning their spouse died is disturbing.

aren't all twitter posts made in real time and therefore "live"?

And she's still a vapid ghoul!

jeeze, modmins--i submit a damn good story about a 5th grade teacher with nudes on the internet and it doesn't make it--instead we get this depressing shiat twice in less than 12 hours??

Actually, they're asynchronous. All messages are that aren't sent until complete. You need something like Talk, where you can see the pause between each character as the realization sinks over her.

how should I feel about this again?
 
2013-12-05 12:25:53 PM
A triple repeat?  That has to be some Fark record....

Is this a new phenomenon sweeping the nation? OH WAIT, it's the same story that was posted earlier today.

If you are in the UK...you shouldn't feel much at all as it occured in Washington State.

Who green lights this crap...

Strike 1: repeat
Strike 2: HuffPo UK for US news (why?)
Strike 3: first submission had a better headline

This reminds me of the time that woman listened to the scanner and tweeted about an accident that happened to be her husband and he died and she didn't realize it.

No. You can schedule tweets for certain days and times. Corporations do this for promotions, blog posts, etc.

This is clearly some wacko who does not understand technology to much - reminds me of people who blindly walk while texting. You know she has to feel 100% more like shiat now she acted like an idiot on twitter.

/George Clooney was right, everyone on twitter are idiots

It seems to be a growing trend in Washington state.

FTA: Mrs Johnson continued to tweet after her husband's death, at one point writing: "I know it's petty, but I went from 567 followers to over 1,300.

She sounds like someone that would buy Jujyfruit and popcorn after learning of her husband's death.

GET OFF SOCIAL MEDIA!

It's destroying civilization. When the end comes, we will all be able to point to Twitter or Facebook and say it was the beginning of the end for our species.

"Remember that less than 5% of submissions are hand-picked for Fark's main page. "

Yet many of them are hand-picked to appear twice within twenty postings!  Wheeeeeeeeee!
