Swearing on Twitter can raise money for charities like UNICEF and the World Wildlife Fund, so let the @%#$ and the $%&@ fly.
A new online Charity Swear Box is “the modern-day version of the office swear jar, asking people to hand over their pocket change as a consequence of letting curses slip.”
Once you submit your Twitter name and sign up for an amount that you would like to donate for every naughty word (they suggest 10 pence which is about a quarter), Charity Swear Box checks your tweets for foul language over the course of a month and sends you a notice of how much you have accumulated. You can then choose to donate that amount to one of the charities listed on the site.
