Tweet Grammar

Here's another brilliant Tweet from a major news outlet. I swear they hire kids just to write tweets. It's hard to tell if they are intentionally doing it to blend with the younger crowds on social networks or if there just isn't any over-site at all.

I am just stunned to see major news outlets produce headlines in any form with U, R, and 4 being used as real words. I guess to be cutting edge enough to tweet the news you have to cut some corners =/

"Incredible video caught on tape of tsunami flooding Kesennuma"

Obscure Capitalization mUch?

"ANALYSIS: Commanders Want More Troops as Afghan Withdrawal Date Nears"

"Are You Searching for a Loved One in #Japan? Let us know and hopefully we can help reunite you"
