(Newser) – Unless Netflix has recently discovered a passion for pot, the @Qwikster Twitter account doesn’t belong to the company, and that's an unfortunate (and hilarious) oversight. Writing for TechCrunch, Alexis Tsotsis calls it an "immediate chink in the company’s rebranded armor, other than the fact that, like a multitude of other failed companies, the name ends in 'ster'..." @Qwikster, an account illustrated by an image of Elmo with a joint, largely explores two topics: boredom and marijuana use. “Bored as shyt wanna blaze but at the same time I don't,” one tweet muses. Another reflects on romance: “Damn so manny cute ass gurl.”
