Kind of cute ... what's wrong with me? Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Twitter heartthrob
These tweets struck me. I found them funny but felt like I was laughing with them rather than at them. The experience of getting absorbed in this story was intense, and people found themselves connecting to it in weird ways.
- Update: this was a thing in the Twitterverse! Like every online trend, of course there was a backlash.

- Some of the fantasies got a little more lurid.
- And some in the Twitterverse were experiencing some pretty mixed feelings.
