What makes this work so well, I think, is the relentless, exclamation-point peppered false enthusiasm of Ashley Greene's Twitter feed. She's always excitedly praising the mundane, and so this nonsense actually gets at a kind of essential truth about Greene's Twitter account and even Twitter itself. (I was at the Institute Of Contemporary Art last week and I learned that artists can just SAY what their work is supposed to mean, and it's apparently not tacky at all! Nobody ever told ME!)

New Meme: Ashley Greene's Next Tweet
Someone's got a great single-serving website called That Can Be My Next Tweet; how it works is, it takes your past tweets and randomly generates new ones from your feed's "DNA." So I guess I don't really know how it works. But it's funny! And anyway, I plugged Ashley Greene's Twitter handle in to see what she would "say." I unwittingly invented a new meme, I think. LOLASHLEYs!
