One of the things we love most about Twitter is that you can find commentary about anything — and we do mean anything — while you're scrolling through your feed. This week brought us tweets that were topical (see House of Versace and the Nobel Prize) and almost completely random (we refer here to the technical definition of the portmanteau "swoobs," notes on traffic, and a question about what to call a male fashionista). A look at some of the best tweets we saw this week, here.
I still do not understand the concept of traffic.

Just received a press release that used "swoobs" as an affectionate term for sweaty boobs. @MerriamWebster, are you listening?

Devastated to wake up and see that once again I was shut out of the Nobel for physics. Is it because I am a blonde?

2m39s into "House of Versace" and I'm wondering why the Atelier Versace show looks like Lisa Landy Couture starring Tia and Tamera...?

My taxi driver in Dubai just asked if I liked One Direction and put on their CD. (Yes, a compact disc.) Lean back, feet up, I'm in heaven.

Six dollars for a bottle of coconut water. Being straight would be a lot cheaper.
