A lot of noise is being made about the value of Twitter searches being able to provide the real-time information that has everyone acting like they’re having an orgasm.

The silliness over the rumor about Apple buying Twitter has gone the way of a bad smelling fart and we get back to the usual Twitter news about nothing. So without further ado here’s today’s Twitter related nonsense.

Quick before I drown in all this Apple buying Twitter rumor crap someone please throw me a lifeline. No kidding folks this is turning into a bullshit tsunami started by the reigning king of rumors Valleywag and perpetuated by just about every other tech blog worth their salt. Of course right at the top of the ‘let’s milk this for all it’s worth’ list was TwitterTechCrunch with a total of three posts on this stupid ass rumor. Thankfully not everyone lost their heads in all this stupidity and actually saw it for the linkbait it was.
At least not everyone was Twitterwashed by all this nonsense and actually had some useful stuff for Twitter today, that is if there is anything Twitter related that is useful.
