  • MARK ZUCKERBURG

>> Twitter has officially surpassed 10 billion tweets, having only broken five billion tweets just four months ago. Science shows that the rapid pace at which the twitterverse is expanding will lead to a black hole implosion. (Mashable)

>> Gawker reports that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg hacked into the personal accounts and emails of his rivals and journalists. So what? That's like saying it's wrong to check your ex's email every now and then. (Gawker)

>> A 36-year-old California man dressed in a business suit opened fire on two police officers at the Pentagon yesterday. While the motive is still uncertain, authorities are looking into anti-government posts he made on the Internet and the man appeared to have acted alone. Good thing crazies have the protected right to carry arms. (the Washington Post)

>> Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi expats will be able to vote in nearly 60 cities worldwide, with the largest number of expats living in neighboring Jordan and Syria playing a potentially deciding role in the tight election race. Even if their preferred politician is elected, they still probably wouldn't move back. (BBC)

>> And finally: Under Washington's new assisted suicide law, 36 terminally ill people last year died from lethal medication after a total of 63 people filled prescriptions for the drugs. I wonder what happened to those other 27 lethal prescriptions... (the New York Times)
