    First, Twitter bios are longer than 140 characters. I don’t recall the exact length but it’s at least 180 if not longer.

    Second, while some of these are amusing, they don’t stand out as that exception. They are pretty much par on course with most bios I see. Did you limit this list to people you follow?

      I meant “exceptional”.
