I'll admit it: I really enjoy Twitter. I've had some brushes with comedic genius on the site (others, not my own), and I am so lazy that 140 characters actually feels like a feat once written. I also particularly enjoy searching the Twitter feeds for subject matter that interests me. Snack foods, Jay-Z, shopping in Los Angeles, reactions to plane crashes. A recent search of "#barbri" (inspired by a friend on my list who is currently in BarBri) resulted in some funny/sad/otherwise empathy-inducing finds:
@markadams44: thinks there must be a better way to provide legal education. But maybe not. #barbri (And I'm not bashing Barbri.)
@jakblackwood: Another day of bullshit taped #Barbri lectures.... I hope I'm paying less than the guys seeing it live.
@jakblackwood: I'd rather be outside in this #thunderstorm/ #hailstorm than sit in #barbri lectures
@JessieBregant: Learning Agency and Partnership from a guy who sounds disturbingly like Homestar Runner. #barbri
@mental_drivel: Why is there a dude studying for #barbri with a headband on?
Good times had by all, I would say.
