If there's an upside to the idea that the government has been snooping through everyone's Internet business, it's this: funny tweets.

Note that Twitter was not named among the Internet companies that have allegedly been involved in the program, called PRISM. (They deny knowledge of it).

Not that it matters. The wits on Twitter would be posting their jokes anyway.

Here are a few of our favorites.

PRISM: Your Gmail, Google, Facebook, Skype data all in one place. The NSA just beat out like 30 startups to this idea.

if we want the NSA to see how angry we are, Twitter isn't a very good way, since it's not part of PRISM, gonna be mad on Facebook brb

Hey #NSA, my wife says that on May 21, 2008, I didn't text her when I'd be coming home, but I say I did. Can you weigh in on this one?
