Internet Win of the Day: Damn the Internet Edition

Just something I thought was awesome for reals …

This tweet perfectly sums up the “hate” half of my love-hate relationship with the Internet. Not to mention it’s F-ing hilarious.

As for the distribution of today’s Internet win point, get ready for some complicated math.

1/3 of it goes to Alec Bitar (@bitar9), whom I’ve started following based almost solely on how good this tweet is.

1/3 of it goes to author Kerry Schafer (@KerrySchafer), who started the retweet chain through which I found Alec’s tweet. Considering Kerry’s debut novel, Between, came out yesterday, I’m sure this win is just super exciting to her.

And 1/3 of the point goes to author/literary agent Michelle Witte (@michellewitte), whose retweet of Kerry’s retweet of Alec’s tweet was what I actually saw. You may remember Michelle from her appearance here on “50 Words or Less(-ish) Fridays.”

OK, so the math wasn’t that complicated. But you have to admit, the whole “retweet of a retweet of a tweet” thing got a little cray-cray.

    I’d like to thank the Academy… Erm, yes. I am super excited!!! And in more complicated math, I will now be following you and Alec, even though I really know nothing about either of you. Proximity for the win!
