A Twat on Twitter
twit_fail_ybnby.jpg
Damn you social networking! Damn you to the vile Harvard taught minds from which you escaped! You've ruined my life! I promised myself I wouldn't do it. I was hesitant to jump into Facebook, convinced it was full of teenagers and 50 year old men with greasy mustaches and REO Speedwagon posters hanging above their beds. I came around eventually, and now click on it repeatedly to see what my friends think about the latest elimination on Dancing With the Stars, as well as their Top 5 Favorite Cartoon Dogs, Which Spice Girl They'd Be, and the 25 Things I Really Didn't Want to Know About Them. And yet, I balked at Twitter. What kind of narcissistic asshole feels like he or she needs to tell the world exactly what they're doing/thinking at every second of the day? It turns out, this asshole.

With 140 characters at my disposal, the world will know exactly what the wrap I ate for lunch tasted like. Am I in a taxi with a cabbie who smells like Honey Nut Cherrios? You'll now know. And, in an Ashton Kutcher-like race to gain "followers" (I currently have "8" and most of those are my family), I'm offering you, the YesButNoButYes reader, the chance to follow me on Twitter. Were that not enough, you can also "follow" YesButNoButYes on Twitter as well.

Consider your day made.

I'm taking you off my holiday card recipient list LIDJ.

said Echowood on April 22, 2009 3:42 PM.

If I ask to follow you, will you think I'm stalking you?

said CindylovesScara on April 22, 2009 3:55 PM.

Cindy you're welcome to follow me anywhere, even to the ends of the Earth.

said Echowood on April 22, 2009 4:00 PM.

Let me know the dates so i can plan accordingly.

said Scaramouch on April 22, 2009 4:11 PM.

One day we will follow Scara on twitter and read: "KICKING ECHOS ASS!"

said Dave on April 22, 2009 4:16 PM.

Echo, were you channeling Tony Almeda with your profile pict?

said Baierman on April 22, 2009 4:21 PM.

Please hold while Echo Google's "Tony Almeda".

said Echowood on April 22, 2009 4:22 PM.

Yes, yes I was.

said Echowood on April 22, 2009 4:23 PM.

The line between you and Ashton Kutcher continues to get smaller and smaller. If you marry a cast member from "St. Elmo's Fire" it could really get freaky.

The most amazing thing here is that Echo joined Twitter with full knowledge that I would make fun of him. That's some balls.

said Johnny Wright on April 22, 2009 4:31 PM.

Johnny...he has to have a wooden set to do that...
unless he named himself after who I found online...see my link over on the questions for the YBNBY staff forum....

said sarcastic one on April 22, 2009 4:36 PM.

Johnny, not only did I join Twitter so you'd make fun of me, but I fully intend on "tweeting" while drinking at the martini bar in Yankee Stadium.

said Echowood on April 22, 2009 4:40 PM.

Oh no, Echo. No no no no.

Damn self-deprecating humor and it's disarming qualities...

said Johnny Wright on April 22, 2009 4:46 PM.

FYI: I'm currently up to 17 "followers", which makes me sort of feel like a Cult Leader, but not a very good Cult Leader. We can do better people! With your help, we can get to David Koresh or Jim Jones types of levels.

said Echowood on April 22, 2009 4:54 PM.

Echo, you need to sleep with all of your followers (or at least the female ones) to reach those kinds of cult numbers...

said sarcastic one on April 22, 2009 5:09 PM.

A side-step here, Echo....
I loved the headline for this post!!

said EffenIdontcare on April 22, 2009 7:25 PM.

Yeah, I had to doff my rumpled fedora at the title of the post. Pretty solid.

said Johnny Wright on April 22, 2009 7:34 PM.

Makes me wonder how much twat could a twit tweet if a twit could tweet twat.

Echo, I believe you are in the best position to research this.

said Tim on April 22, 2009 8:57 PM.

Cheers gents. It's the little things.

said Echowood on April 22, 2009 8:59 PM.

That's (not) what she said....

said sarcastic one on April 22, 2009 9:01 PM.

Oh, Sarcky...that's a low blow.

said EffenIdontcare on April 22, 2009 9:42 PM.

I will only follow you into hell. If twitter is hell strike that

said Baierman on April 22, 2009 9:46 PM.

(innocently) All I meant was that their things are *not* little!

said sarcastic one on April 22, 2009 9:47 PM.

Uh, Huh.
I am sure that is how Echo took it.

said EffenIdontcare on April 22, 2009 10:55 PM.

Okay, Effen...next time I will go for the slightly more lame and predictable "that's what she said" remark...

but as a girl I wouldn't be commending a group of guys on the little things...unless it was about them holding the door for me, standing up when I got up to leave a table at a restaurant (silly practice but would be a nice surprise since no one does that anymore), and complimenting me on my outfit (without sounding like elevator glancing pervs or Perez Hilton).

so, yes, if the little things were chivalrous actions, then...
"That's what she said!"

said sarcastic one on April 22, 2009 11:16 PM.

You've got a ways to go, Echo. I post to Twitter about once a week and I have 298 followers.

said Miss Cellania on April 22, 2009 11:59 PM.

Miss C, his follower count has quadrupled since he posted--so by the end of a week, he could be in a CNN/Kutcher style race with you ;-)

Whoever is buying/donating the mosquito nets is the one I'm going to root for!

said sarcastic one on April 23, 2009 12:03 AM.

Why do I see Echo's tweets following this line of notification:

said JediJeff on April 23, 2009 7:22 AM.

Miss C would definitely win. The thing is, people actually LIKE her.

said Echowood on April 23, 2009 8:40 AM.

Twitter has nothing to do with love...look at the farting chair guy.

People need distractions in these crazy times...and we need follow up stories...did Donna graduate, did the clouds pour down, etc....

said sarcastic one on April 23, 2009 8:44 AM.

Donna did indeed graduate and I made it (to the bar) with only a passing shower.

said Echowood on April 23, 2009 8:55 AM.

People like me? They really like me?

News to me!

said Miss Cellania on April 23, 2009 11:49 AM.

Echowood is up to 40. I'm up to 304. Maybe I should post my profile link.

said Miss Cellania on April 23, 2009 11:50 AM.

What's the difference between a follower and following?

said Baierman on April 23, 2009 12:18 PM.

The direction the money is flowing.

said Tim on April 23, 2009 12:37 PM.

i don't think that's the answer Tim.
