Last week we read this article, and apparently twitter's own users think 2/3 of the content is boring, useless, irrelevant, etc. Basically, not worth reading. At first, we thought, well...duh. It's a (mostly) unedited stream of consciousness. It's a pile of "pay dirt" and you have to filter through to find the gold.
*sidenote: How awesome is Gold Rush on Discovery Channel? What? You mean, a tear didn't come to your eye when Grandpa John Schnabel had a heart attack last week? Your heart needs some gold.*

Conclusion? We have even more reason for finding that 1/3 of tweets worth your time.

For the record, we love football. What we like as well? Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally. Nice blurb: "There are two fundamental things in this world that baffle teenage girls--love and football.

Authors: so self-sabotaging, so charming, tweets so worth reading...
