favortweets! round #3

Oh you Twitter Peeps, you all were particularly witty this week. I marked so many favorites during the past 7 days, I don’t think I’m going to be able to post them all here. But I’ll pick the Best of the Best and hopefully the list won’t be too long.

I truly love you guys. Seriously.

Also: NEW FEATURE! I’m adding a little link to everyone’s blog (at least those of you who have one) to give you some blog love. Because really, if you’re this awesome in 140 characters or less, your blogs obviously rock too.

JanePitt From now on when any famous person’s name is trending, I’m just going to assume they died to save myself the research. RIP Brett Favre. 9:33 PM Jul 28th

    I think I’m gonna have to start following this AllisonB person :D All of these are hilarious! I’m so happy (for selfish reasons of course) that you know such funny people.

      AllisonB is awesome :) She’s a Burgher and I’ve met her several times (went to the zoo with her & her son a few weeks ago!) and yes, her tweets are HILARIOUS.

    I tried to read some of these out loud to my husband but couldn’t come close to doing them justice. I was laughing so hard I couldn’t breath. Talking was out of the question.

    So glad you started collecting these!

    My husband loved the Indiana Jones one, and all of them are amazingly funny! Thank you for posting these :-)

    Haha those are fantastic! I love how witty some people are. My tweets are boring in comparison.

    All of these are the reason I would never go to BlogHer. You actually have to be a BLOGGER – you know, write, and be witty. Way too much for me. I am comfortable sitting in the backseat and laughing at them. I’ll never claim to be a blogger!

    Oh, that BPDad- love the “huge minds that can think all night” tweet- especially after reading his post about the same subject. His blog is sometimes a little existential for me, but in 140 characters he can’t make my head spin too much! :)

    I totally agree with Laura- I am NOT a blogger! :)

    Aw, thanks for the shout out! I will try not to buckle under the pressure.

    And I’m just telling the truth, man. We should find a way to combine Webinars and winebars. We’d make a million!
