and now a post of great social and political import 😉
In [a] stunning display of the fact that some people really need to get a life, your tweets are being watched for proper grammatical syntax.
A small but vocal subculture has emerged on Twitter of grammar and taste vigilantes who spend their time policing people’s tweets.
They build their own algorithms to sniff out tweets with typos or flawed grammar, or written in ALLCAPS, and then send scolding notes to the offenders. They see themselves as guardians of a new behaviour code: Twetiquette.
“It would be kind of nice if people cleaned up their grammar a little bit and typed in lowercase, and made the Internet a little bit smarter,” said one of them, Nate Fanaro, a 28-year-old computer programmer from Buffalo whose Twitter handle is CapsCop.
Know what else would be nice? If self important little twits minded their own damn business!
