When Twitter was first being developed, one of the co-founders suggested calling it “FriendStalker.”

In retrospect, it’s probably good that they didn’t go with that for a few reasons. First of all, most people don’t use Twitter just to keep up with what friends are up to anymore. We’ve got plenty of other tools for that. Twitter has become more about keeping up with people you don’t know but are interested in. Secondly, of course, “friend stalker” is just the downright creepiest thing in the world.

Let’s celebrate that mistake being sidestepped by stalking these great tweets.
