If there's one single problem with Twitter, it's crafting that perfect 140-character dispatch—so arduous. The impeccable balance of wit, brevity, and pop cultural references is so tricky! Not anymore. This site mines your Twitter archives for source material.

It's as if it's reached its webby arm down my throat, into my barely-pulsating soul, and tickled the nerves that're responsible for Twitter-based folly.
