With Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides hitting theaters May 20th, it seems our obsession with pirates just won't end — though for many of us, sailing the seas of digital piracy is about as close as we'll get to an eye-patch-and-parrot lifestyle.
If you're addicted to crafting the perfect 140 character tweet haiku, you can thank—or curse—Twitter creator Jack Dorsey.
