Please note: We just deleted an automated tweet saying there was a 6.8 earthquake in Isla Vista. That earthquake happened in 1925.

So many things are automated these days … SkyNet anyone?
Are you Sarah Connor? (bonus points if you read that in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s voice)
Back in 1925 we were all on 56k dialup, and tweets were slow to process.

Oh man, that was FAST for 1925. Remember the sound of a dial-up modem?
Can you just take us with you back to 1925?

Dude, no way.
Back in 1925 we wore onions on our belts, which was the style at the time

We walked to school UPHILL both ways in the snow, barefoot … and we LIKED IT that way.
Honestly if the people of today went back to 1925 we’d all totally meltdown without our Starbucks and cellphones.
And Twitchy …
Must have been uploading the news through internet explorer

Sorry we’re a little late on that … HA!
Damn, y’all had Twitter before it was invented?
