Unless you're a willful and adamant luddite or a conscientious dissenter pop culture trends, you've undoubtedly noticed how Twitter has steadily and unceremoniously unseated all the other social networking sites to become the primary means of communication and information dissemination in the Obama era. (Yes, we know some of you are thinking, "I'll take obvious shit for $300, Alex.") When the balloon boy story broke, for instance, we first caught wind of it on Twitter long before we ever thought of switching on a telly or turning on a radio. What's more, the Twittervese has also become one of the most entertaining and insightful places to catch a glimpse inside the lives of some of the most outspoken members of our community, 140 characters at a time, of course. We never ceased to be entertained by the tweets of various members of our scene and suspect that you will be equally as, um, twitterpated. With that in mind, welcome to Twitterpated, our latest weekly feature in which we collect the most captivating tweets from some of our favorite follows.
