Sorry Kids: Twitter, Facebook, Last.Fm To Remain Adults Only... For Now

This posts is strictly for teens, and by "teens" I mean people between the ages of 13 and 17 who are Xbox Live Gold members, so if this isn't you, please stop reading immediatly...

Seriously, stop reading this post. Go read The Wall Street Journal or something, old man.

Are they gone? Good. Now that it's just us kids, I'm gonna "rap" at you in a language that you'll totally grok, and lay down a real bummer trip: According to Microsoft's Major Nelson, the Xbox Live versions of Twitter, Facebook and Last.fm that are coming to Gold members won't be usable by anyone under the age of 18. That, my homies, is wickety, wickety wack. Denied... TO THE EXTREME!

Major Nelson says: "We made this decision because as it stands now, parents aren’t able to use Family Settings to customize which of these applications their children can access."

Dude, that's a total downer. But don't become a cutter or light up a crack-pipe: There's hope. According to Nelson, the radical dudes over at Microsoft are "working on an update that gives parents the choice of which social applications their children can access," so hang tight, good buddy. 10-4!

Now that all the parents/adults are gone, I want you all to check out this tubular TV show I found on the YouTubes... but make sure you get your homework done! Homework is for awesomes:
