Oberstar Tweets

Several weeks ago, after reading a legislative update from Minnesota Congressman Jim Oberstar, I emailed him and suggested that he consider tweeting some of his updates on Twitter. Today I received the following reply:

Ms. Jody Scott-Olson

Royalton, Minnesota 56373-0184

Dear Ms. Scott-Olson:

Knowing of your interest in a Twitter account for me where you can be updated on current legislation and other relevant issues, I am pleased to report that you can now follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/JimOberstar.

With best wishes.


James L. Oberstar, M.C.

Generatus: For the Imaginatively Challenged

I pirated this post content from the Woo Woo Teacup Journal. It’s a website called Generatus and it creates content for social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Some of these were so funny that I couldn’t resist posting them.

Jody said no to drugs but they didn’t listen.

Jody isn’t perfect but she’s so close she scares herself.

Jody is wondering: What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

Jody is letting the wookie win.

Jody is the new black.

Jody is so clever that sometimes she doesn’t understand a single word of what she is saying.

Jody is being dealt a blushing crow.

Jody wouldn’t be caught dead with a necrophiliac.

Jody is a dwarf-tossing champion.

Jody didn’t retire, she surrendered!

Jody started out with nothing and she still has most of it left

Jody is so poor that every time the wind blows her address changes.

Jody is writing with a goose quill dipped in venom.

Jody loves everyone and baby you’re next.

Lexx is hypocritical; she thinks that hippopotamuses are ugly.

Twitter Rank: Among the Twits…

I just logged onto my Twitter account and noticed that other Tweeters had linked Tweets to a webpages that tell you the value of your Twitter account and a page that gives you  your Twitter rank… as if my week wasn’t depressing enough.

Either I’ll expand my social network…or maybe I’ll just go back to bed.

Twitter Rank

Tweet Value

Now I feel like… yeah, like that.
