It may look effortless, but keeping WitOut running takes hours of focus, concentration, and sitting. Our editors and writers put their cold little hearts and dark, empty, unfeeling souls into everything they do for the site, in the hopes that readers like you will laugh at, learn from, and/or passive aggressively comment on their work. The rewards are few and far between, but the false sense of importance that comes with being part of the WitOut team is certainly worth it!
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the making of one our most popular new features, “Tweets of the Week,” curated by editor Aaron Hertzog:
