Today's Smile c/o #Twitter

for friends in treatment—a daily dose of love, beauty or laughter

Posted Jan 13, 2013

Today's smile comes from technology. WIthout twitter, I would never have had the chance to laugh at these.

Real Tweets:

Conan O'Brien @ConanOBrien

I just bought a painting from an emerging abstract artist, or someone just sold me their napkin.

The Onion @TheOnion

"It’s nice to get away, clear my head, and come back invigorated with a newfound disgust for my place of employment"

Steve Martin @SteveMartinToGo

Just hoping the Patraeus scandal doesn't spread to Big Bird.

Luke Burbank @lukeburbank

Looking forward to the day when "Because I was sitting on the toilet looking at my phone for 1.5 hours for no reason" is a legit explanation
