Today, the pranksters at the Onion offered up an “Ask Me Anything” meet-up on Reddit with a parody version of America’s vice president, a pretender known as “Diamond” Joe Biden. To lure in the crowds, fake Biden offered answers on “my Trans Am, things you can make into a pipe, Barack, or where we can hook up later” among other things. The real veep was less than impressed, and one-upped the faker with the flick of a Twitpic.

Noted domestic abuser and pop star Chris Brown went into attack mode after twitter-er and writer Jenny Johnson (who has been pecking away at Brown for a while now) trolled him yet again.
After using “shart” in the most elegant of ways and aiming a number of vile tweets at Johnson, Brown deleted his twitter account. I will admit, I think it’s funny when comedians “get to” people who are ultra-famous. Props to Mitt Romney for not breaking in the face of @robdelaney.
Twitter is appealing a judge’s decision requiring the social media company to turn over an Occupy Wall Street protester’s tweets and account information to Manhattan prosecutors.
In June, Criminal Court Judge Matthew Sciarrino ruled that releasing Malcolm Harris’s tweets would not violate his privacy, since he had posted them on a public website.
Harris, a Brooklyn-based writer, was arrested with hundreds of other Occupy members during a mass march across the Brooklyn Bridge last fall.
The case has focused attention on a number of murky legal questions surrounding the use of social media, including whether users own the content they post publicly and whether companies like Twitter can prevent authorities from using that information to prosecute social media users.
