Grim news Daily Create challenge, a writing one today:

Write Your Own Tw-Obituary (your life in less than 140 characters)

Another Hat Tip to the Urban Dictionary: “Your life’s work summed up in 140 characters or less. Just the right size for a gravestone perhaps?”

Mine is a bit of play on the Twitter API Error Messages, playing like making an API request for my timeline (I had to chop some of this to fit the characters):

userstream.twitter.com/1.1/user.json

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<errors>
<error code=”410″>This resource is gone.</error>
</errors>

Yes, my last tweet is an error message. I won’t be replying.

The image is from the Tombstone Generator – you can one of these sites for almost everything you can imagine– church sign, fast food signs, Band Names

I came across this while looking for some other twitter lingo, and got 3 or more Daily Create prompts out of the search.
