Twitter is great for breaking news... and also for hashtags that have the capability to immediately mock said breaking news.  Yesterday, it was reported (shockingly) that Kim Kardashian's marriage ended after 72 DAYS to otherwise anonymous NBAer Kris Humphries.  Against all odds, this marriage turned into a traveshamockery faster than you could say, well, traveshamockery.  So much for the sanctity of marriage. The trending tag that arose in light of this stunning news was #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage.  Of course, there are way too many sports examples to let this pass by unnoticed.  We thought of a couple, but also took to Twitter for your ideas as well.  Below are Things Longer Than Kim's Marriage and the matching Twitter handles of our tweeps.  As always, these are Real Tweets from Real People...
