"Flutter: The New Twitter"
Tired of reading all those long, time-consuming Twitter entries?
Just a little late for April Fools Day comes this YouTube-posted spoof documentary about a fictional "nanoblogging" site called Flutter. Where Twitter lets users ramble on for an entire 140 characters, Fluttter's site keeps things short and simple, at a tidy 26 characters.
The (again, fictional) site even has a product in the works designed to help users keep in touch with their friends while on the go: FlutterEye, a pair of normal-looking eyeglasses designed to keep you in the loop when your friends put on a pair of socks or visits the restroom at Starbucks.
Check out the video here.
Full disclosure: The video was produced by Slate, which is owned by the Washington Post's parent company -- though I personally came across this video only after seeing a few Twitter posts about it today.
