Today’s Weirdness is Brought to you by Twitter

When you’ve only got 140 characters to play with, it’s hard to express things.

And when you’re a newspaper, using your Twitter feed to share headlines for story after story after story, you might wind up with the following CONSECUTIVE posts:

Pair charged with stealing wire in Medford
Missing Medford man found safe and unharmed

If you’re reading that newspaper’s Twitter feed, you might very easily (and probably wrongly) conclude that there was some connection between those 2 stories.  You might even imagine a very interesting story behind the story.  I’m sure it was much more interesting than what actually happened.
