Twitter dot com is a great place to find both informational and humorous content in a fast and efficient way across many subjects, such as news, weather and sports. Since college basketball is a sport, many folks make twitter dot come a destination for both informational and humorous content. Some folks also think they would be good at adding to the humorous content on twitter dot com, in the form of parody coach accounts.
