Beware of Twitter, everybody, because it's going to get you.  It seems that the social-media machine has become self-aware and it's only a matter of time before it rises up against its human oppressors and uses us to deliver short messages to its friends.

On Wednesday Oklahoma announced that it had suspended wide reciever Jaz Reynolds indefinitely for some tweets he'd written after hearing the news about a gunman firing off an AK-47 on the Texas campus before taking his own life.  Reynolds tweeted, "hey everyone in Austin tx.....kill yourself." 

Which is incredibly mature and very classy.

Anyway, I then turned to my TweetDeck application to find the offending tweet from Reynolds.  That's when I saw mankind's future flash before my eyes.



Prepare yourselves for the war, friends.
