This past month, I decided to follow the Huffington Post on Twitter. Not since I began following former congressman Anthony Weiner almost two years ago, have I regreted a decision on social media so much.
The internet newspaper tweets so often, that I can barely find tweets from anyone else I follow. Below is an example of what my home page now looks like at any given minute:

The only alternative theory is that the media organization has someone who sits, glued to a chair, frantically tweeting every single thought that runs across his or her mind, but no company would subject its readers to that.
Or so I thought, until I began reading the company’s tweets.
Here are some examples from the past few hours of non-stories tweeted by the Huffington Post:
