Tweets of the Week: 22 – 28 Oct

The dark and freezing morning starts we’re all facing (unless you’re not living in the UK/ Northern Hemisphere) is the main topic in the Twit-o-sphere this week and Adolf Hitler.  No no no, it’s not his birthday, where people tweet their…feelings about it or anything like that but something a tad more controversial.

The news: 140 characters a day, 7 days a week 

Well I said it was controversial didn’t I? Mr and Mrs Campbell from the USA decided to name one of their children after the former Nazi leader. As a result, their children have been taken into care by order of the courts. According to the Mirror, the Campbells, who also have a daughter named Aryan Nation, raised their kids in a house with Swastikas surrounding it.

If you’re going to name your child, Adolf Hitler would be one the last thi – no, it shouldn’t  be considered as a name, sitting alongside Muammar Bin Vader Gaddafi Mugabe Fritzl the Conqueror. Those kids are going to have a rough time unless they get their names changed into something that doesn’t attract bullies on the school playground.

Tweeting during a television programme has become part of the TV experience over the recent years. The majority of those tweets have been ruthless mocking towards the X Factor and Made In Chelsea, especially towards the former. When ITV’s flagship show decided to have a “Rock Week”, they sort of forgot the rock aspect, mistaking Ke$ha as a rock legend.

Or am I just incredibly out of touch with the modern music world?

My insignificant problems

I unsubscribed 5 times already yet I continue to receive e-mails from them. Whoever has signed me to their mailing list, I would like to let you know:

1. Well done. You clearly know how to infuriate me.

2. Please stop.

3. I’m begging you.

4. Please.

I don’t care if it’s fake because it’s brilliant. Like the Wacky Video Will at the end of Fry’s Duplicate’s funeral in the first Futurama movie.

I wish I wrote that letter. I really do.

I wonder, what was that Dragon from Shrek drinking the night she decided to bed a donkey?!
