Amanda Bonnen: Twitter Lawsuit
This lawsuit is so amazingly frivolous that it almost makes the whole Twitter thing interesting again - I kind of hope this starts a trend. Amanda Bonnen (who up until she canceled her Twitter account had 20 followers) is reportedly being sued by Horizon Realty for "maliciously and wrongfully" publishing a tweet that may have damaged the company's reputation. Check out the offending tweet.
I Love You Beth Cooper's 'Viral Disaster'
This is a painfully obvious attempt at a viral video from the marketing team for teen movie I Love You Beth Cooper. As Gawker points out, it's really bad, and it's worse when you realize that the girl was paid $1,800 to do this, that it was shot by Fox, that the boy in question isn't her boyfriend and doesn't even like her that much, and that the video has been a total flop on YouTube.
