Given today’s earthquake, I’m going to commemorate it by rounding up my favorite tweets and posts.

  • The building I am in was just told to evacuate. I just evacuated my bowels. 
  • Did the Internet bubble just burst? 
  • Breaking: Remaining East Coast VCs make plans to move West. Last remaining reason to avoid San Francisco just eliminated.
  • There was just a 6.0 earthquake in Washington. Obama wanted it to be 3.4, but the Republicans wanted 6.0, so he compromised.
  • There will be a benefit concert for NYC earthquake survivors. Except you have to be on the list to get in.
  • RIP Jenga towers everywhere.

xkcd made a great comic about the speed of tweets:

And of course, the winner is this post, which I’ll copy here:


“Thanks to all of you for your kind words of support, as we look to recover from the devastation of today’s quake!”
