So I was following tweets about the health care vote over on Huffington Post
and noticed that some tweets are completely in code. For example, one tweet read:
Why would anyone tweet in code? Is it a secret message to their cult? Are they tweeting from hardware (Mac?) incompatible with the rest of the universe? Is it a virus which is now devouring my hard drive? Or just a momentary failure of the di-lithium crystals at the heart of the Internet?
