image for Twitter Feeds Regarding Mystery Missile Off Southern California's Coast Provide Absolutely No Insight

(KTLA 5 News) - Putting scientific analysis aside, the Los Angeles Times has posted a real-time group-think Twitter-feed that provides dubious enlightenment on the situation.

Encouraging readers to join the conversation by asking:
What do you think it was? Share your speculation in comments below. The Times has unleashed a flood of banter, ignorance, and every conspiracy theorist's wet dream come true.

Details are sketchy, but current fashionable "tweets" include:

Gabriella16672 / OMG! A MISSILE!
Horndog72 / Can I get fries with that?
MuckyDuck242 / The fact that the military took so long to deny the missile makes me even more suspicious.
REM4ever / It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.
SpaceElevator22 / In accordance with the prophecy!!!
LovePotion#9 / Wonder twins, activate!

While these comments do form a fascinating picture of the least common denominator of poorly-informed citizens (also reaffirming that opinions are like assholes: everybody has one), they fail to provide ANY MEANINGFUL INFORMATION.

Make SpaceElevator's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
