I keep noticing serendipitous juxtapositions in my Twitter stream: people whose tweets have words in common, but not in a current affairs or trending way. Of course, I’m not including simple words such as ‘the’ or ‘and’.
Take these two tweets, for example that were immediately adjacent in my stream, both about ‘fish’:
lancewiggs: Waiting for order number 222 at Ohiwa’s primo fish and chips shop
RobCottingham: Feed a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Feed the man to the fish, and you’ll be the fish’s friend for life.
Or this, where ‘bacon’ is the common point:
nzlemming: Excellent! How to baconify your bourbon: http://tr.im/Hgmg
thequotemaster: “There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.” Francis Bacon
I notice these serendipitous juxtapositions often. How about you? Seen any fun juxtapositions in your Twitter stream recently?
