I have nothing but sympathy here as I am a fellow pocket-tweeter.

And pocket instant messenger. I once sent my friend Jay an IM with about 400 smiley faces.

Pretty lame post for Deadspin, and that's saying a lot. Must be the holiday skeleton crew...

Stroke victims aren't fodder for easy humor.

We'll, usually they are but in this case DS whiffs badly.

Pretty lame - although unintentionally informational. I had somehow missed that the Times-Picayune had gone from a daily newspaper to a three times weekly one. The Picayune comment got me to do a search to get that info.

Possibly the only useful thing Deadspin has ever done.

My wife, while running a marathon, once pocket-texted me "MI PORK".

I was utterly baffled and a bit worried that she had some sort of heat-related illness.
