Grim news Daily Create challenge, a writing one today:

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

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