Getting your celebrity gossip from "TMZ" is soooooo 2009, dude. Each Thursday in "Twitter Litter," RFT Music rounds up the week's best meltdowns, ego battles and WTFness from rockers, rappers and DJs who aren't afraid of a little hashtag action. It's time to take out the trash.
In our previous edition of Twitter Litter, former Disney urchin Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) shocked people with her brand-new furries-loving sexytime body that she rubbed all over the Growing Pains dad's son. This week, musicians are concerned with yet another topic of national importance: remembering the September 11, 2001, attacks (admittedly, it's a bit more somber than Mileygate). But our famous Twitter denizens are divided on how -- or if -- to acknowledge the twelfth anniversary.

Should they listen to their own treacly songs, like Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey)?

DO YALL REALLY BE PRAYING ABOUT 12 YEARS AGO OR ARE YOU JUST SAYING THAT TO LOOK ALL CUTE TODAY.— Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) September 11, 2013
We at RFT Music have no answers, so we'll just take a cue from Mark Hoppus (@markhoppus):
In my dressing room, farting.— Mark Hoppus (@markhoppus) September 11, 2013
Music from the butt flute really does unite the world.
On that note, go to page two for some dick jokes!
We're pretty stoked that Rihanna (@rihanna) doesn't have any silly PR people running her Twitter and Instagram feeds. Otherwise, we'd miss out on the hilarious bonerpranks she pulls on her security guards:
That Rhi-Rhi -- first an airplane ride from hell, and now #cockclutch. Guuuuurrrrrrl.
Lovely, just caught my dog twerking....... What's this world coming to— Courtney Love Cobain (@Courtney) September 11, 2013
"What's this world coming to?" Um, didn't you support Smiley Miley's in-heat performance in our last edition of "Twitter Litter?" It might be a little hypocritical to bitch about your bitch, no?
Not everyone in "Twitter Litter" is actin' a damn fool. Ludacris (@ludacris) is celebrating a birthday, though unfortunately it's not the grand affair that we had at Chuck-E-Cheese's when we were eight:
I was on set working in London this exact same day last year & im working on set again this year! Fast & Furious owes me 2 Birthdays! Lol— Ludacris (@Ludacris) September 11, 2013
Sweet! Ask Ana Lucia to say hi to Libby for us!
RFT Music's favorite hometown tweeter Murphy Lee (@murphylee) has some advice we all could use:
Just smile.....fuck it— MURPHY LEE (@murphylee) September 11, 2013
Murph's been playing a few shows in faraway lands. And while he hasn't serenaded us in a while, he serving up views from the stage:
