After a day of staring at Twitter, we're sharing our favorite tweets that made no sense
We respect and value the social media editors who share the links that make our job easier. But sometimes, we have no idea what they are talking about. So after a long day spent staring at Twitter, we're sharing our favorites.
The rising class of "singletons": Living alone doesn't mean being lonely. wapo.st/yh14V7— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) February 27, 2012
not making you weird, it turns out living alone doesn't even make you lonely. These people who have been knocking living alone as the first step to starring in your own personal Roman Polanski clearly don't know what they're talking about.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s anti-social behavior raised well-threaded eyebrows at the Women in Film pre-Oscar celebration. nydn.us/zOflqs— GATECRASHER (@NYDNGatecrasher) February 27, 2012

The FBI has a new spokesman. His name is Gordon Gekko. His message: insider trading is a serious crime. on.wsj.com/AF1mUL— Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) February 27, 2012
We saw and enjoyed the Wall Street sequel, so we feel the need to point out that Gordon Gekko was not exactly reformed in that movie. Hopefully Oliver Stone waits another 22 years and makes a third installment that traces his final, final change of heart.

Well, there you go. Science has proven it. Hopefully the Little Black Dress will leave without causing major incident.
VIDEO: MERKEL GETS A BEER SHOWER... drudge.tw/AjN6K0— Drudge Report (@Drudge_Report) February 27, 2012
This warrants the all-caps. We would have thrown in a few exclamation points and randomly inserted interrobangs at the end, but apparently Drudge preferred an understated approach. Fair enough.
