Twitter, one of the biggest crazes to hit the internet in recent years has been revealed to be a typo.

Tommy McDung, advisor to the minds behind 'Twitter' disclosed that the original business plan was to get as many Twats as possible to natter to each other online. The hope was that all these Twats would be so glued to other Twats lifes that they would leave the rest of us alone. The combination of 'Twat' and 'Natter' was therefore to become 'Twatter'.

One of the designers released this statement when questioned on the typo. "It is true that the original name was intended to be 'Twatter' and not 'Twitter'. However, this small mistake has clearly not diverged from the experiment. Anyone can see that there are now millions of Twats posting on the sight daily, with more Twats signing up every day. The more they post on the sight, the more likely they are to leave us alone."

When questioned further on the attempts to revert to the name of 'Twatter' the designer advised enquiries were still being made but is unfortunately already registered to Gordon Brown, though they hope that as he is the biggest Twat of all he may agree to hand over the registration.

For now, the advice remains that if you are indeed a 'Twat' then continue to be a 'Twit' and post every detail on your mundane boring lifes at
