If you're anything like me, you have a secret (nonpublic) list of your very favorite tweeps: one composed of the people whose company you really enjoy, or whose words never fail to tickle you, or make you think, or whose cries to battle resound in your heart.
And maybe, just maybe, there's one or two to which you might admit (to your closest friend, and then only after pinkie swearing them to secrecy) that you have a crush on. 'Nuff said.
Well, if your list is on the superslim side (and who besides starving models, the profoundly guilty, and brain-eating zombies love "superslim"?), and if you're a fan of Star Trek, True Blood, Star Wars, NCIS, and Criminal Minds (and who besides starving models, the profoundly guilty, and brain-dead zombies don't love these shows!), here are a few tweeps I offer as suggested thickeners/fatteners/corn starch to your gravy list:
- LordPalpatine Emperor Palpatine. Last tweet: Remember remember the fifth of November. Lightsaber, Jedi and plot. I see no reason why lightsaber, treason, should ever be forgot.
