This article is for all fellow tweethearts out there who are active in the digital twitter-verse. We love updating our twitter to share the latest updates about our shows, promotions, contests and waaaay more! Therefore, when we heard word of abused tweets we had to see what was up.

Larry Carlat became obsessed with Twitter, lost his job, got divorced, and alienated loved ones. The “tweetoholic” describes tweeting “every hour on the hour, day and night.”

In clear violation Carlat’s employer’s social-media policy, he either deleted his account or could face termination. Carlat, chose to remain an avid tweeter over keeping his job.

A month later, he divorced his wife tweeting “I would’ve taken a bullet for my wife, but now I’d rather be the one pulling the trigger.” Clearly a suicidal twitterer, or as we would like to call it, “twittercidal,” Carlat’s own son threatened to stop following him on Twitter.

This called for a Twittervention and last month, Carlat quit cold turkey. He admits to the occasional itch to tweet, maybe one or two accidentally chirping out now and then, but Carlat’s immense compulsion urge has been lifted. Tweeting  Twagedy!

The craziness of abused Twitter accounts continues.  We heard of one account making it a goal to tweet every word  in the English language. Everyword is his alias and he has tweeted 63,186 words. It is on the letter “N” now. Everyword‘s Twitter profile reads, “Twittering every word in the English language. Task will complete in 2013.”

In fact, we feel a tweet coming on right now!
