SOPA, Mark Wahlberg, and Facts Without WikipediaBy: Josh Wolford - January 18, 2012
Twitter is a wonderful place for one-liners. To be funny on the site, you’ve got to be sharp and practice economy of language. You’ve only got 140 characters to make an impression.
And what better way to wind-down the work day than with a selection of some of the day’s most entertaining tweets.
Today, the internet was (rightfully) concerned with SOPA and PIPA, and the Twitterverse reflected that. Thus spawned some enduring hashtags #FactsWithoutWikipedia and #ThingsBetterThanSOPA. Oh yeah, and Mark Wahlberg kind of said that he could have stopped 9/11 – so there are some tweets about that too.
