Twitter users fill Wikipedia void


UPI News Service, 01/18/2012 

Users of San Francisco-based microblogging site Twitter are filling the void during the 24-hour Wikipedia blackout by sharing their own "facts."

Wikipedia went into a 24-hour blackout Wednesday to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act, which is being considered by the U.S. House of Representatives, and its Senate equivalent, the Protect Intellectual Property Act, the South Africa Times reported.

However, Twitter users are filling the void by sharing their own "facts" using the hashtag #factswithoutwikipedia. The informal information includes:

"The plate was invented by Plato."

"'Star Wars' is based on the lesser known Shakespeare work 'Thy Force Be Stronge.'"

"Mayan prophecy states that Beliebers will be responsible for the apocalypse."

"The original title of Mario Puzo's 'The Godfather' was 'Italians Say the Darndest Things.'"

"The first fact was conceived of by Sir William of Sasquatch in 47 B.C."

"If you throw a boomerang and it doesn't come back, you're entitled to a full refund from the manufacturer."
