The End of Twitter


We are fast approaching the Twitter Expiration Date. It turns out that all possible 140 character combinations of tweets will have been tweeted by 3:17 pm this coming Saturday. To commemorate the brief legacy of Twitter, I have assembled a collection of some of the best tweets ever keyed. Coincidentally, they were all created by me, and can be seen on my Twitter feed:

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana2 Sep

We have to kill people to punish people for killing people in the wrong way. It’s America sending a message:”the correct way to kill people”

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana29 Aug

It’s telling that the Republicans’ Grand Old Party rearranges to reveal their true message meant to entice voters: “Try Old Grandpa.” #truth

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana28 Aug

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana27 Aug

How can you be “more than welcome”? You’re either welcome or not welcome. If there is a state that surpasses welcome it needs its own word.

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana26 Aug

Everything you read is true, except for this tweet, which is false. If you don’t not disagree, don’t RT. #ithinkthiswasastartrekplot

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana22 Aug

Get in touch with your inner old person. #goofy #inverse #whatever

Love #watsky at #Vidcon Have terrible fear that if I slowed down #georgewatsky it would turn out that he’s just rapping cupcake recipes.

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana1 Aug

Could be a sign of being on Facebook too much that every sequence in my dreams gives me an option of clicking a “like” button. #facebook

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana31 Jul

There are exactly zero hits for “the benefits not procrastinating” and and 4,700,00 for “the benefits procrasting”. The internet has spoken.

I am planning something so important that I can’t even let myself know what it is. #secrets #spleen #bigevent #fantasmagorical

If you think of your home as a very exclusive internet cafe, it seems far less pathetic that you don’t go outside. #internet #pathos #humor

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana27 Jul

@SyfyTV Sequel: I think the next marine tornado should also pick up thousands of dolphins, which battle the sharks in mid-air. #SharkNado

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana27 Jul

Remember that time when giant tornadoes of sharks destroyed Los Angeles & we had to shoot the sharks in the sky for some reason?#SharkNado

Still mulling over the circumstances regarding my sock disaster from 2 days ago- why didn’t anyone inform me of my sock problem? Trust noone

Effects of yesterday’s sock incident still unclear – everything appears to be eerily normal. #sockincident #daisybrain #spleen #random #poo

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana22 Jul

Went all day with my left sock on inside out. Too soon to know the consequences of this action. #socks #disasters #spleen #random

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana18 Jul

I would like to apologize to my 8th grade class for my levitation trick that went horribly wrong on the last day of school. #disaster #oops

Pro-lifers are lame: I never cut my hair and save all skin cells for later use in cloning. Exfoliation is murder! #reproduction #weirdness

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana3 Jul

Working on generating more sperm for more babies. I can repopulate entire planet after doomsday. All with little Erics. #insanity #choice

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana2 Jul

Pro-life doesn’t go far enough. Men should save and freeze all their sperm for use in artificial insemination. Sperm is half a baby! #joking

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana1 Jul

When it says “20% Free” there’s nothing on the label saying you have to pay for the rest. Just open up the cereal and take your free 20%.

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana21 Jun

Reading this tweet contractually obligates you to retweet it. Sorry. #annoying #thatslife #daisybrain

Eric Spears ‏@EricIndiana20 Jun

As long as Paul McCartney’s hair is preternaturally brown I can continue to cover my bald spot with a fury pot holder. #aging #standup
