HJ: it's like you're sending a link to a friend
MP: is that it?
HJ: but it's on twitter
HJ: or you said something funny
HJ: and i write your name and the message
HJ: and put it on twitter
MP: all of these people need to get off my metaphorical lawn
HJ: 90% of the time it's marketing spam
HJ: totally retweeting this
