“Never odd or even” — palindromes draw respect when they carry at least some spark of meaning; you’ll even read them twice. Some time ago, a good friend of mine came up with the idea of pseudo-palindromes (the same abrupt absurd and worthlessness), but you’ll read them twice anyway: “Eat timely Nathan. Want tea? ”
Tweets are akin to palindromes because of the challenge of cramming some significance within the predefined frames: “RT @Oldjx re: #word #worms in #bigdictionary: http://boo.tv/Yjbs-T7. Lol! R U 2? So is @7H1NKER”
I am just a beginning twitterer. To catch up for my lost time and under-enjoyed challenges of brevity, I made up some pseudo-tweets — messages outside of Twitter that look like tweets but not exactly.
- There is an 87% #probability that you are within 22 miles from your %home.
- 60% of bankruptcies are due to #health issues. #statistics #Strata
- No wonder Spain have the best team in the world. Each Spanish man seems to produce about 10 children. #probability #Spain
- More than 25% divorce proceedings use #data from http://on.fb.me/4VGeu.
- Through #2015, 85% of Fortune $500 organizations will be unable to exploit #bigdata for competitive advantage. #GartnerPredicts
- #nytimes and the @Washington @Post describe people who weren’t using social networks and weren’t using mobile phones as “refuseniks.” #without #phones #G00174167
P.S. There is one real tweet here. Hint: it contains a mistake.
