And then I came up with a number of categories, some mocking, some rewarding intentional humor, some serious. Like there could be “funniest tweet,” “dumb celebrity tweet of the year” (intense competition there), “creepiest tweet,” “most incoherent tweet” (Scott Brown’s recent possible drunk tweeting might win), “Best Breaking News Tweeting,” “Best Organizing on Twitter” (the recent establishment of #TGDN to defend twitterers from block and report abuse would seem a shoo-in for that one), “Best Talking Back to a Celebrity,” and probably a whole bunch of better categories I haven’t thought of.

On this most somber day, America is united under God in its quest for peace and freedom at home and across the world.
