All twits are tweeters and all tweeters are twits.

The fact that Weiner got 1.2 million in retirement benefits for a dozen years "Service" is outrageous.  He didn't deserve that; and as a disgraced public "servant"; deserves nothing.  Why isn't he paying back part of his salary?

Tweeting is a dumb concept. Just like a bird in a tree, tweet, tweet...

Weiner loses $174k a year but nets $1.2 million in benefits and is about to be elected to another office?  Yup, sure showed him. He must've taken notes from Marc Sanford.

Those who want Tsarnaev freed because "he's too cute to be a murderer", if employers ever tie it to job prospects. Beyond reprehensible.

How can the NBA fine people for complaining about BAD refereeing?  You don't want to hear complaints? FIRE THE IDIOTS WHO KEEP MAKING BAD CALLS.  Pretty effing easy.

Its amazing how silly folks are with technology.  If the people had more character than the number of characters limited to a tweet, the world would be in much better shape.  The damage done with only a few words is nothing compared to what lies within those who tweeted the bad stuff.  Really, they all got off easy.

Stupid is as stupid does--if you TWEET, you could become a TWIT--& everyone connected might just want to "twitter-tweet"you into oblivion--which you probably deserve! Get a real life already!

when I was a kid, (you know...back in the dark ages) we were taught "put your brain in gear, before engaging your mouth."  or in the case of the internet, before engaging your typing fingers. Freedom of speech is everyone's right in this Country, but that doesn't mean there won't be consequences for things we say publicly.

Don't forget to add Obama and his state reps on the Travon Martin case....When the smoke clears.. these racist idiots will put us back to the 50 - 60 on the racial front. But then again, Jackson and Sharpton have made a living keeping us there!
