It’s the Justin Bieber/NAMBLA Tweet You Weren’t Waiting For

What's the opposite of a retweet? The North American Man/Boy Love Association — better known as NAMBLA — has joined Twitter (or at least convincingly appears to have, since verifying this fringe group is doubtlessly not high on Twitter's current priorities), and after obligatory shout-outs to Jaden Smith and kid singer Cody Simpson, the group went all-in: "@justinbieber hello, I was hoping you have a moment to speak with NAMBLA about our cause," came the tweet from NAMBLA's Twitter operator. "Please message me for details." They'd better hurry, since Bieber will be of legal age in less than a year, and where's the fun in that? [NAMBLA/Twitter via World of Wonder]
