    DON’T TWEET WHILE DRIVING! It’s dangerous! Plus, I love my Twitter pals and I would hate to see them wrapped around a tree coz they’re replacing “you” with “u”.

    Too funny. I actually know someone who got a traffic ticket because he was twittering.

    I knew I was addicted to twitter when I changed my e-mail signature to include my twitter contact.
