Instant surrealism on Twitter

A web site called That Can Be My Next Tweet takes your Tweets and remixes them to create new Tweets. The result is a Tweet that sounds like you but also ventures into surrealism. (I tried it, and sent out a Tweet that said, "I scored 80 percent. MT Supervillain or me? Maybe both purged at Penn State: But thanks for being!" I sent one more: "No one of RAW book that MLB could do without the Rapture happens Saturday, we'll lose our coach." It reads like the 1960s collage poetry of Charles Henri Ford, although a more appropriate comparison here would be the cut-up prose technique invented by Brion Gysin, popularized by William Burroughs and used by Robert Anton Wilson
