Spanning the Twitterverse to bring you the constant variety of tweets
The thrill of the retweet and the agony of the unfollow
The human drama of the twitter timeline
This is CadChica’s Wide World of Tworts
Thank God it is finally Friday. My favorite day of the week. No, it’s not because it’s the last day of the work week (I work 7 days a week — seriously, I do). It’s my favorite because it is Friday Fun Tweets time. Today wasn’t as fun as last week but hey, it’s still Friday and there’s still fun to be found.
I spanned the Twitterverse and came up with these “gems” (or not):
THE NAME IS JOHN?
The newspaper business isn’t what it used to be. But, you would think that a big sports story like winning golf’s U.S. Open, would bring about some close fact-checking but no.
IS THIS LIKE, THE DOG ATE MY HOMEWORK?
I’m telling you, the easiest way to understand social media, be it Facebook, Twittter or whatever, is to use some common sense. Unless of course, you don’t have any and then, well…..all bets are off. This story just makes me shake my head.
ONLY AT WIMBLEDON

NO JORDAN, I DON’T WANT TO SIT NEAR YOU
I’m guessing that the Seahawks’ Jordan Babineaux didn’t have Pepcid, Tums or any other antacid at home. Just reading the tweet make my gut hurt.
I MISS PAUL
For those that don’t remember, Paul the Octopus was the German octopus that correctly predicted games during the 2010 World Cup. If an octopus could roll, I think he’d be rolling in his grave with this tweet:
NFL: STAND AND _______
The lockout drags on. Negotiations are still ongoing. The Twitterverse is tired of it and so they try to make the best of it.
TWITTER IS THE BEST FOR:
…facts you won’t get anywhere else. Okay, so you’re tired of me saying it but I LOVE TWITTER. Apparently, I’m not the only one.
The next tweet is reason No. 1, 857, 000 why I love Twitter …—

Arizona! Bear Down Baby!
TWEET OF THE NIGHT
For the uninformed, during the basketball season, Klay Thompson thought he had lost his iPod at the hotel room and was late for the team bus. He was benched for the start of Washington State’s game against ASU in Tempe, Arizona. Thus,
