From SFGate.com:

Megan Phelps-Roper, granddaughter of church founder and preacher Fred Phelps, explained in her tweet:

Don’t be silly! We’re not protesting Twitter as a platform; that’s like picketing television! =) We’re picketing the people who run @Twitter, who don’t use their position & voice to warn a generation of rebels of the consequences of their rebellion. Same goes for those at Foursquare & Gowalla (tho I personally find their products useless — at least relative to Twitter. =)

So the Westboro Church went out to Twitter headquarters in San Francisco and protested Twitter. So Megan (that’s the lady who did the Gaga song) thinks Twitter is bad, but yet she’s using the service? Doesn’t make sense to me.

I do like the signs that the protesters protesting Westboro Church made.

Thanks for sending this bitchhog.

Who’s Megan Phelps and what is the Westboro Baptist Church? (It’s the God Hates Fags people. Don’t worry Marvin, I don’t feel that way. I know that makes your day) Yes, they are that loving and understanding group who speak for God and help give religion a great name.

Anyway, this song is pretty funny. You know she put a ton of time listening to Poker Face to come up with these lyrics.

Just wanted to welcome all the people from shoutwire.com. I hope you’ll take the time to read the comments. Thanks shoutwire, and thanks anonymous.
