Most Memorable Tweets
The most significant posts on Twitter. All have lengths of 0/5.
1. (13 June) Hell hath no fury like the KTM commuters.
2. (26 August) Pissed people pisses me off. That's so weird.
3. (9 October) My 10-year-old sister was playing a game called "Sexy City" on Facebook. What. The. Hell.
4. (27 October) So I clicked on this website. And a "virus scan" started, telling me I have hundreds of trojans in my Linux computer.
5. (31 October) 'Trick-or-treat!' 'And who are you supposed to be?' 'An illegal immigrant from a poor Asian country.' 'Whoa.'
6. (13 November) Electronic engineers have lousy English. We say things like 'I is big', 'V is high' and 'we is I are'.
7. (18 November) It took me 20 years to notice what a big head I have sitting on my neck!
8. (26 November) Why do British newspapers give that much description on rape cases? I wear tight briefs and it hurts, y'know!!! I'm switching to boxers.
9. (10 December) I thought it was bad when my 10-year-old sister applied for a Facebook account until I received an invitation from my 7-year-old cousin.
10. (12 December) Two shots of vodka, one of gin and two cans (440ml) of beer. In one night, I've taken more alcohol than I've ever did in my entire life.
PS. While most of my favourite Facebook updates are also Tweets, there's one exception. (25 December) Some hot chic meet me beneath the mistletoe. NOW.
