Where to Find the Wit

With Twitter, every little daily circumstance is a gold vein of humor that you will come to mine for years until everyone tells you to get a new shtick already. And comedy comes from more than the obvious sources. But here are the obvious sources.

  1. Family: Children are to be seen, heard, and embarrassed throughout their adult lives with your detailed record of the adorable things they said as kids.
  2. Work: Ever get jealous of the people who run this site? They get paid to sit around reading Twitter. If you just make sure your boss doesn’t see your screen, so can you.
  3. Drinking: It’s not alcoholism if you do it alone but laugh about it with your Internet friends.
  4. Strangers: Be polite as you want to weird, annoying, or entertaining strangers. They don’t have to know they’re the butt of your Twitter joke.
  5. Politics: Discuss your most deeply held opinions in the perfect format for spirited conversation: a service that only gives you 140 characters to make your point. It’s like holding the presidentia debates via bumper sticker.
