New Tool: Twitter Audit

Twitter Audit for Account @kittehboi

Twitter Audit How many of your followers are real?

I am pleased to say that 95% of my followers are real. I am unhappy to say that 5% are fake. How do yours rank?

I will be weeding out that 5%.

You can also use the tool to find out whether you act like a fake account. Some of the characteristics of a fake account are too many RTs, posting too many links, and failing to answer when spoken to.

Animals in Shakespawe

Did you know dat William Shakespeare was one of da first playwrights to write in English[1] for regular people, rather than in French or Latin?[2][3] He wrote lots of animals into his plays.

Three come immediately to mind.
  • "How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child" King Lear Act 1, Scene 4, 281–289
  • "Let Hercules himself do what he may, The cat will mew and dog will have his day" Hamlet Act V, Scene I
  • “Cry 'Havoc', and let slip the dogs of war” Julius Caesar (1599) Act III Scene I


So I looked up some more:
  • "Thou call'st me dog before thou hadst a cause, But since I am a dog, beware my fangs" The Merchant of Venice
  • "And so disfigure her with it, that she shall have no more eyes to see withal than a cat." The Taming of the Shrew
  • "For all the rest, They'll take suggestion as a cat laps milk." The Tempest Act II., Scene 1
  • "I am as vigilant as a cat to steal cream." King Henry the Fourth, Act IV., Scene 2
  • Lady Macbeth points to the cautious habits of the cat:
    "Letting I dare not wait upon I would, Like the poor cat i' the adage."
  • Also in "Macbeth", the superstitious fear of the cat:
    "Thrice the brinded cat hath mewed."
  • "Cats, that can judge as fitly." Coriolanus, Act IV., Scene 2
  • "I am as melancholy as a gib cat." King Henry the Fourth
  • "A crouching lion and a ramping cat." King Henry the Fourth
  • "Slow in profit, and he sleeps by day More than the wild cat." Merchant of Venice
  • "Some men there are love not a gaping pig, Some, that are mad if they behold a cat." Merchant of Venice
  • "As there is no firm reason to be rendered Why he cannot abide a gaping pig, Why he, a harmless necessary cat." Merchant of Venice
  • "I could endure anything before but a cat, And now he's cat to me." All's Well that Ends Well
  • "Hang off, thou cat, thou burr, thou vile thing." Midsummer Night's Dream
  • "But will you woo this wild cat?" Midsummer Night's Dream
  • "And every cat and dog,
    And every little mouse, and every unworthy thing." Romeo and Juliet
  • "In killing creatures vile, as cats and dogs." Cymbeline
  • "And yet I bear a burthen like an ass" Richard II, Act V, Scene 5
  • "And in his needy shop a tortoise hung, An alligator stuff'd, and other skins Of ill-shaped fishes" Romeo and Juliet: Act 5, Scene 1, Page 2
  • How did I forget this one: "By this reckoning he is more shrew than she." Taming of the Shrew, Act IV, Scene 1

If you haven't read Shakespeare, there is a totally free ebook at Project Gutenberg, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare.

Da lady like hard copy better.




[1] Since you asked, Christopher Marlowewas another.
[2] Even though you didn't ask, Beware the Cat by William Baldwinwas the first original English-language novel.
[3] The very first English-language novel was Thomas Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur,however this is a retelling of half-mythological oral tradition rather than an original work.

“Activists are some of the judgiest people I’ve ever met, myself included. We work hard to expose injustice and oppression in the world. But among us, grace and forgiveness are hard to come by. It is a terrible thing to fear my own community members, and know they’re probably just as afraid of me.”

-- Frances Lee, “Excommunicate Me from the Church of Social Justice
