9 Meaningless Tweets From @HuffingtonPost

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:

hufftwittMy Twitter feed now consists of almost nothing but the letter H.

The below video is an exact illustration of what it would be like when I sign onto Twitter, if I were a Muppet and my Twitter feed was on television:

Initially, I though that Huffington Post must have tons and tons of urgent information it must send out to its followers.

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:
