Do the links make for better tweets? Please leave your thoughts in the comments below, or feel free to send me a tweet.

- “@ksablan that is just plain wrong.” I can’t really provide a link for this fictional tweet, but feel free to follow my tweets. You’re sure to find all kinds of things that are “just plain wrong.”
