humans will do just about anything for recognition, inluding adding #tweetsinspace to send their message into the unknown

Think tweeting to mere earthlings is a little too limiting? On September 21, the Tweets in Space project will beam your tweets to GJ667Cc, an earth-like exoplanet 20 light years away.
Previously, only elite institutions and select individuals with access to expensive equipment could communicate beyond Earth’s orbit. Now, everyday folks need only add the hashtag #tweetsinspace to their short texts, and their words will be relayed to GJ667Cc at the speed of light. Our soon-to-be alien friends will instantly receive scores of unmediated thoughts and responses about politics, philosophy, pop culture, dinner, dancing cats and everything in between.
Sadly, this is what our planet has to offer:

Oh, the shame! Let’s hope there’s no intelligent life out there. And if there is, let’s hope they can’t translate these tweets.
You think certain jokes are bad without context? Imagine getting this random crap via interstellar space! #tweetsinspace
