You won’t be able to see the next big change on Twitter, but it might affect whose tweets you see. It was announced today that Twitter was tweaking its metadata to include an algorithm that “grades” tweets with values of “high,” “medium,” “low” or “none.” Hence, it will now be possible to rank tweets according to […]
Cheer up, Harry — Michael Moore might think you’re a weenie, but you’re the biggest weenie.

If Elvis Costello is reading this, he might want to consider taking out a restraining order, because Jason Biggs is tweeting some seriously creepy stuff at him. Apparently, Costello is sitting near Biggs on an airplane. Biggs, of course, took this as a good excuse to … ahem … be himself. I know a famous […]

Whatever we think about Barack Obama, we won’t begrudge him for taking his wife on a nice date for Valentine’s Day. Heck, we’ll even say that he has great taste in restaurants for selecting José Andrés’ renowned “Minibar.” However, we can’t help but point out the fact that his date night probably ruined Valentine’s Day for […]
Both Republicans and Democrats have been using the occasion of Valentine’s Day to score points and take political jabs at each other. Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) sent Rep. John Boehner some “romantic” Twitter poetry, but the House Speaker might be playing hard to get. Maybe he responded with a discreet direct message, but for public […]
A spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County sheriff-coroner said Thursday that the remains found in a burned-out cabin in Big Bear, Calif., are indeed those of fugitive Christopher Dorner.

Cat Scratch Tweets: Ted Nugent calls Luke Russert on his ‘soulless nasty punkass journalist 101 violations’
Oh, dear! Looks like Ted Nugent doesn't care for Luke Russert all that much… Lol— K.D. Carlson (@kdcarlson15) February 14, 2013 Heh. They did have a bit of a run-in recently, after the State of the Union address, which musician Ted Nugent attended. Ted Nugent walking into #SOTU with jeans, camo boots, black button down […]

To help make it easier to understand, these Twitter users are pushing back with common sense and truth.
Zeke, stop dictating Obama's words and start reporting @ZekeJMiller: Obama: "This is the most transparent administration in history."— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) February 14, 2013 Twitchy told you that PolitiFact is looking for ways to pass the time now that its mission of helping President Obama’s reelection effort is complete. We should have put PolitiFact’s fact-checking […]
That’s right. President Obama is your eye candy and your valentine.
Major Garrett will probably never live down his now-infamous profanity-laced tweet, but who says that’s a bad thing? I do promise all of you the 10,000th Tweet will be #SHIRTTASTIC!!— Major Garrett (@MajorCBS) February 14, 2013 We’d expect nothing less.
