The talking heads have shared their views on the financial nitty-gritty. Now here’s what the Twitterverse—the only source of information that's more addictive than Facebook—has to say.

1) Facebook goes public tomorrow. It's about time. They made everything about you public a long time ago. —Brett Erlich, @bretterlich

2) With its IPO, #Facebook is now officially a waste of time AND money —Andy Borowitz, @BorowitzReport
