Twitter Logo

Everyone seems to be jumping on the Twitter bandwagon lately (including Shaq, Ashton Kutcher, Lance Armstrong and Britney Spears) and it’s definitely a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, but can you ever love Twitter too much?

Here are five signs that you might be a little too addicted to Twitter:

  • You’ve created a Twitter account for your dog, like Ridley and Vivj.
  • You’ve created a Twitter account so that you can impersonate a fictitious TV personality, like Borat and Roger_Sterling.
  • You’ve created a Twitter account so that you can remember to water your plants.
  • You refuse to buy from companies that don’t have a Twitter account, because Zappos, Starbucks and Comcast just ‘get’ you.
  • The first thing you do after reading this post is tweet a link to it.
  • (Bonus points if you arrived here from a link in a tweet.)

Have any other suggestions for signs you might be addicted to Twitter? Post them in the comments below and help others on their path to recovery.

…It’s Movie Monday: Time Lapse Design?

Time Lapse Design

Ross Allchorn from Allchorn Design created this time lapse of his design process on a fictitious blog from mind map to paper sketch to the first Fireworks design concept, and it’s an interesting (and quick!) look behind the scenes of the design process form start to finish:

…It’s Website Wednesday: NOLAF?

NOLAF

To help defend you against the fun disease (and to help sell chips, because as you know, nothing is more fun than chips) Frito-Lay has created a site for a fictitious group called NOLAF, better known as the National Organization for Legislature Against Fun.

It’s shot as an old propaganda style film, and lets you click through the NOLAF headquarters to see what there is to see; so feel free to poke around for a bit, but just make sure you don’t have any fun while your browser window is open, because they’re watching you…
