All the news that's fit to tweet, in 140 characters or fewer.

With hundreds of millions of tweets per day, it’s impossible to follow everything happening on Twitter. Every Friday, the Daily Dot rounds up notable Twitter news and stories from the past week—in 140 characters or fewer.

  • The company also has a new data editor who'll be crawling your tweets for interesting insights.
  • Lindsey Vonn's ex-husband joked about calling in her new beau Tiger Woods's apparent cheating during the Masters. Or was he joking?
