Tweeters have sent a grand total of more than 300 billion tweets, according to the financial prospectus Twitter filed Thursday ahead of its highly-anticipated public offering.
But only a handful those tweets merited inclusion in the IPO documents. As you might imagine, the tweets that were included were heavy on ads, and light on spambots masquerading as porn stars. Still, as the Wall Street Journal notes, Twitter may be the only company to include Osama Bin Laden in its IPO filing.
We've collected Twitter's favorite tweets -- or at least the ones it thinks will help them make money.
Here are the tweets Twitter considers worth celebrating:
