The Big Tweet: What a Few of Rocks Off's Twitter Friends Are Up To

Rocks Off is no less fascinated by the Twitter phenomena as when we began Twittering in earnest back in February. (We still prefer that to the other term for those 140-character-or-less updates, 'tweeting.') Since then, we've built up a Twitter-verse of about 420 'followers' and about 100 more 'followees' (or whatever you call them) and decided to put all that scrolling through their messages to good use. Every day, we'll bring you 10 or so of the funniest, silliest or even most useful Tweets from our page. Be sure to add us here and we may even post yours...

Chamillionaire reluctantly confronts the end of basketball season: "Well at least you can be happy that my trash talking will be postponed until the NBA season starts again. I know I hurt a lot of feelings." (See Cham's NBA Finals blog here.)

Stay tuned for more As the Twitter Turns tomorrow...
