The Mystery of Missing Twitter Time...

Just one week after the mysterious "crash" of Blogger, Twitter fell silent for nearly a day yesterday as users' streams all over the world simply disappeared into the cloud...

Questions are being asked around the world  all over the internet in the halls of Congress here about the real story behind the outage:

Was it a pre-emptive strike by Facebook to draw attention away from its corporate and money problems?

"SurferBoy1996 looking for SurferGirl..."

Was it Glenn Beck going Biblical on Andew Breitbart?
"Thou SHALT NOT have any other prophet 
before me..."

Was it NATO bombing the servers in Libya?
"Bloody hell!  I just lost all me Twitpics! 
Rum do, that...!"

Was it the sinister Chinese?
"That's what you get for not switching 
to Kylin OS, gweilo lo fa'an..."

Was it Official White House Troll and MoveOn House Husband Jesse Lee flexing his virtual muscles?

"Anytime someone says 'it's simple as black and 
white' you know it's a racist Republican slur on
this President..."

(note: there appears to be a problem with getting 
pictures of Jesse Lee, so we're posting two — TBL)

Or was it some other unnamed, malignant force dedicated to the principle that there is just no fun you can have that SOMEONE won't want to take away...

AMERICA DEMANDS ANSWERS!  And until we get them we'll — well, we'll just have to speculate wildly in 140 characters or less...

Only 140 characters!?!? But this is America! Land of the free, home of the brave! Plus the internet thingy is supposed to be unlimited, so how the heck....!!! This could only mean one thing. (Looks suspiciously around) Black Ops. Watch the skies. Watch the news (you know who I mean). No! Not Chris Matthews. Watch your neighbors, co-workers, people at the store, and possible other seemingly friendly sorts. Who are they really? And for goodness sake, watch your computers, and the sites you go to (you know the ones), and especially email. That nice little request for the president or congress to ....Well, you never know where it will end up.

It was probably just a glitch. (wink, wink) But in the words of that famous philosopher, Mr. Spock, "Interesting."

My apologies to the gods of the blogosphere if this was more than 140 characters.

There is nothing wrong with your Tweet Deck. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it longer than 140 characters, we will make it longer. If we wish to make it shorter, we will make it shorter. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. For the next 24 hours, sit quietly and we will control all that you Tweet and read. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Obama Limits. [dah-nah!]
