1The best man who twitters about the newlywed's sex life
An anonymous best man came up with the smartest prank ever. Based on the same concept used for the Twittering office chair, this cheeky guy set up a system to get and report increased activity up top straight from the groom's bed. So, every time the couple is… ahem… "on the job", there's a tweet that makes this private moment not so private. Once everything is done, the bed even reports a summary of the love-birds performance!
The daring best man justifies himself saying the prank is a payback for a joke his friend (now the victim) played on him when he was his best man. However, he promises to never unveil the couple's identity or his own. Well, with or without names, I bet the huge amount of visitors do enjoy every time they take a look at his profile!

Just take a look at Justin Halpern from San Diego, who turned this frustrating reality into an internet phenomenon. This creative man found his inspiration in his dad's irreverent daily quotes that he decided to post everyday on a site called shitmydadsays.
The site contains fragments of conversations, observations and exclamations coming out from Samuel's mouth, the most famous dad on Twitter now. The 73-year-old retired man has now thousands of followers on the internet. He and his son, Justin have even received some interesting offers from literary agents and book publishers.

5The mother who tweeted her son's drowning and death almost in real time
This one is about Shellie Ross' misfortune, whose 2 year-old son, Bryson drowned in the swimming pool of the house. But what's Twitter got to do with this? Well, here comes the odd part… The woman, who has more than 5,400 followers, tweeted them at almost every stage of the tragedy. First, a 911 call saying her son was lying at the bottom of the pool; about half an hour later she tweeted “Please pray like never before, my 2 yr old fell in the pool”; and a few hours later she tweeted one more time “remembering my million dollar baby” and posted some photos of her little son.
Although some of these tweets have been since removed, a debate was set on Twitter about the mother's behavior. Either to support or criticize Shellie, this terrible misfortune has caused a great shock on the famous site's users.
