Favorite TweetStuff (06/22/12) ~ Enjoy! ~

Every Friday I gather items from my Twitter stream which I find amusing, ironic, whimsical, inspiring, beautiful, or odd. Lots of links today! Enjoy!

While Twitter Was Down…

@Dude_itsMikey “#WhileTwitterWasDown I wrote 140 character notes on post-it notes and left them around the house.”

@1DsATeam “#WhileTwitterWasDown: *refresh* .. *stare* .. *refresh* .. *stare* .. *refresh* .. *cry* .. *refresh* .. *weep* .. *refresh* .. *stare* ..”

@HeyKim 21 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity
[SEO: Many really remarkable pictures, including some with the “before and after” to provide context.]

@pourmecoffee “Today is the longest day of the year, unless you are having a family reunion this year.”

‏@SarahEOlson2009 Internet Gives Harassed Bus Monitor a $500,000 Vacation [UPDATED]
[SEO: This is a fabulous display of using the Internet as a force for good! A man heard school bus monitor Helen Klein speak on TV about how she is verbally abused daily by students aged 12-15 on her bus. He set up a fund to give her “a really nice vacation”, and it went staggeringly viral. The vacation is being planned, and all leftover funds are stated to be going entirely to Ms. Klein. See Ellen DeGeneres’ comment below.]

@TheEllenShow “It breaks my heart. I’m so moved by the donations. Bullying doesn’t end when you grow up. It ends when we stop bullying.”

@ashwinsanghi Amazing: ‘Potter’ theme played using only glasses of water
[SEO: Includes a second video with the theme from the original movie score for comparison. I prefer the water glass version!]
