Looks like writers are making a jab at the realm of Twitter and Facebook.

So how does the social networking site operate? WUPHF allows users to send out a message — also called a WUPHF — to any device or platform in existence.

B.J. Novak

Michael: I sent you a Facebook message yesterday and still haven’t heard anything back!

Ryan: You should have sent a WUPHF.

Michael: A what?

Ryan: When you send a WUPHF, it goes to your home phone, cell phone, email, Facebook, Twitter and home screen — all at the same time.

Oh, in case you are wondering, has its own domain on the Interwebs!
