Oh, you use Twitter? That's so 2006.

Show the world who you are.

Most social networks have sterilized their user pages. They give you a profile picture, short bio, and that's it. Crabber wants to give people a chance to show off how cool they really are.

From Crabberpedia, the free encyclopedia

Carcinisation (or carcinization) is an example of convergent evolution in which a crustacean evolves into a crab-like form from a non-crab-like form.

Supported by science.

Fact: You and everyone you love will eventually become a crab. No exceptions.
