A Selection of Interesting, Funny and even Weird Tweets to Brighten Up Your Day




Twitter Sunday: Favorites Tweets @themonsterist

We follow many artists on Twitter. Artists we of course appreciate but sometimes their tweets are not as interesting as their work (and no, we won’t give names!). Pete Fowler‘s tweets @themonsterist prove the contrary. The artist lives in Monsterism Island and here is his Twitter Bio: ‘drawer, illustratorer, scrabble loser, sound explorer and yacht rock lover. Did I mention owls?’. Because of the Mini Boosh toy figures, TRWG!, the ...


Twitter Sunday: Favorites Tweets @Surfrider

  We are very concerned by environmental issues at the Sama Gazette. Everyday, each member of the Sama Team tries to reduce his/her impact on the environment. If climate change is almost everyday on the front news, we often forget the oceans. So today we want to share with you our Favorites Tweets from the Surfrider Foundation, ‘dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the worlds oceans, waves and beaches’. About Surfrider ...


Twitter Sunday: Favorites Tweets @ebertchicago

If you are a movie fan, then you know  the long-running syndicated film-review show ‘At the movies’. Even some of us, living in France, we at least heard  the name of the movie review program once, even though we couldn’t watch it on television over here (hopefully, we have Youtube!). The show has been cancelled this week so we decided it was time to follow Roger Ebert on Twitter @ebertchicago, a ‘Film critic since time ...

Twitter Sunday: Fav. Tweets @PRINCE_OFFICIAL

  For this new Twitter Sunday rendezvous, we will share with you the tweets from a great singer. His name is Prince Rogers Nelson, a.k.a Prince. We were very happy to follow him when he started to tweet a few days ago but the pleasure didn’t last very long… Instead of interesting tweets about his work or even his daily life, we got hundreds of tweets and retweets polluting our Twitter page,  messing with all the others tweets we were ...
