Sooner or later, some genius Social Media Einstein (or perhaps more accurately, some SM equivalent of Hooke or Boyle or lesser known pioneer) will come up with a clearly defined set of Laws of Twitter/Social Media Thermodynamics. 
In the meantime, I, your humble field researcher, shall postulate that for “Each and every Twitter action of sufficient gravity, there is a nearly equal and opposite reaction.” My latest case study: this morning’s Twitter-based release of The Black List of “most liked” screenplays, followed within a few hours by Twitter’s nascent, and nascently amusing, Fake Black List, which you can read and even contribute to here: https://twitter.com/FakeBlackList 
Given the state of high-concept pitches that actually get bought in Hollywood these days, the Fake Black List suggests fallow ground indeed for 140-character comedians looking to spoof the projects that get made these days. 
That said, should you submit, don’t be surprised if that wacky road trip buddy pic involving a man, his mother-in-law, a rolling meth lab, three adorable dogs and a wisecracking kid  doesn’t get at least optioned for a production start in Q3 of of 2013.
