"Twitter Tweet Chirp Burp"

This only makes sense if you’ve gotten into the micro-blogging-social-open-messaging thingamabob called Twitter and have noticed that as it has gotten more and more popular, used and abused by a whole bunch of webfolks, it has had more ‘downtime’ than General Motors’ stock price. And like a small town TV station in the ’60s suffering ‘technical difficulties’, it has used a series of “Please Stand By” graphics to make the natives less restless (which really doesn’t work). More recently, they’ve settled into using one picture that is supposed to signify the massiveness of its mission of transmitting millions of 140-character-or-less messages all over the web. It shows a flock of their semi-trademark Twitter Birds with ropes in their beaks, holding a whale up over the surface of the water. An interesting metaphor. But I think this is better:

Yes, I made that using graphics that may or may not belong to Twitter.com. Call it parody, please.
