“Twitter was intended to be a way for vacant, self-absorbed egotists to share their most banal and idiotic thoughts with anyone pathetic enough to read them. When I heard how Iranians were using my beloved creation for their own means—such as organizing a political movement and informing the outside world of the actions of a repressive regime—I couldn’t believe they’d ruined something so beautiful, simple, and absolutely pointless.” – Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey

Psych! That brilliant piece of self satire could only come from one place. Yes, that’s right, The Onion has finally gotten around to satirizing everyone’s favorite social network. Too bad they didn’t do it in 140 characters or less — with the article clocking in at -860 characters on my twitter text box, I’m not sure I can sit still long enough to read the whole thing, let alone tweet it. And if I can’t tweet it, it must not be worth my time. Right Jack?
