[unwisdom from Twitter]

Some lighter fare for Friday: an unedited compilation of quotes, aphorisms, advice, and spam from just a couple of days on Twitter. Hope it gives you a laugh. Or maybe you’ll actually learn something.

Inspiration and advice, completely free!

BTW, I get tired of the continual punctuation and spelling mistakes on Twitter. Some people are (legitimately, I guess) trying to cram in more characters, some have no clue, and some just don’t care. How many mistakes do you count in this post? Including mine?

Oooo, these are good! O.K., My favorites are:
“The time for action is now. Its never too late to do something.”
“I would rather be hated for what I am, than to be loved for what I am not.”
and
“You either want to be right or want to be rich and wealthy; you cannot have both.” (edited for spelling and grammatical correctness.)
Also for that last one, I have a video to go with it! It’s Tom Leher’s song, “Selling Out.” http://bit.ly/grplbK
