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 we have a lot of good material about Reed Hasting's announcement about Netflix and Qwikster. Also, we learn how Steely Dan might review a business on Yelp. Enjoy!
