Twitter, meet Woofer. Woofer, shut up.

The novelty site Woofer looks like the micro-blogging site Twitter and quacks like Twitter.

The quacks (or woofs), however, have a 1,400-word MINIMUM.

"What can you accomplish with the extra 1260 characters?" the site asks (Twitter post cannot exceed 140 characters):

"- Use adverbs.
"- DEA (don't ever abbreviate)."

How about, "Don't use"?
