We're talking billions, maybe trillions, of tweets to be preserved for posterity forever. Considering the amount of profanity that roils around in there, I expect they'll have to install a kid proof filter on it. And who knows what future historians will think of the trending topics. Sometimes it's like a high school cafeteria in there. That guy Justin Bieber who appears to be some new teen idol has been trending for weeks.

On a different note, I had my 15 seconds of twitter fame the other day. CNN read my tweet about the plane crash in Russia that killed most of the Polish leadership, on air.
