I use the “favorite” icon on Twitter as a) a sort of bookmark for later perusal and b) much like Facebook’s “like,” which can effectively end a tedious social media conversation without having to just up and say, “Fuck off now, it’s been a pleasure.”
BUT I don’t often go back and review those favorites, which puts a damper on a).
SO I’m going to actually go do that right now and embed some of the stand-outs. I “favorited” them for a reason – likely to read the linked story or reflect on whatever was written – and I’d imagine that you, comrade, would enjoy them as well. Whatever they happen to be.
Paul Walker wasn't a great actor, but I watched all five Fast and Furious movies in a day, and it was actually cool. http://t.co/ANYl4NSO1x

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, but rather to skid in, used up, shoutin "Wow! What a Ride!"

Best reporting advice i ever got was from @ericneel: stay with the scenes and the people. don't rush to imbue it all with meaning.
