It’s part of an initiative to make Twitter a happier, cuddlier place to be, with the usual boast that it’s shrunk the number of ” unhealthy” tweets on the service. That includes a 27 percent decline in “bystander reports,” on Tweets that violate the company’s code of conduct.

According to the War Zone, Iran’s Minister of Information and Communications Technology Tweeted, or is it twatted, a picture of their countries new spacesuit for Iranian astronauts. It didn’t take long for sleuths to figure out it was actually a cheap Halloween costume available for a mere 20 bucks online. Who knew the Ayatollah had his very own Amazon account.
