140 Characters Of Fame!

Welcome to the party! As Scott Simon approaches his millionth Twitter follower, we're celebrating by inviting all of you to join our 140 Characters Of Fame feature.

Share your best 140 character, and we'll pick our favorite 10 and read them on the air next Saturday, Sept. 19.

Tell us a joke, jot down a thought, post a witticism or send a salutation. But do it fast — only submissions entered between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. EST will be accepted. Leave us your Twitter handle so we can contact you if we choose your message.

**UPDATE: That was a great two hours — your messages made us laugh, snort and raise our eyebrows. We've now closed the board for entries, but take a look at what people entered on our 140 Characters of Fame page.

And be sure to check back next week, when we'll broadcast our favorites!
