"Secondary Twittage"

2008

One of the coolest things about Twitter is writing replies to people A LOT more famous than I am (and once every hundred times getting a reply back). I’m talking people like Wil Wheaton who have 16,000 other followers. Especially when they respond strongly positively to something I have since forgotten saying. Woot!

Warren Ellis tweeted:

Knee just blew out. Seriously thinking about just sawing my left leg off. Bonus: I could get a false leg that does cool stuff. BUZZSAW DEATH KNEE ACTIVATE

followed soon after by:

Oh, I see, you people WANT me to mutilate myself for your amusement. You evil pricks. I get no love at all.

so I replied:

Mutilating yourself would NOT amuse me. It’s just nervous giggling.

What would amuse me is you replacing your real leg with a Swiss Army Leg. With laser, GPS, pepper mill, tire gauge, tweezers, fog machine, blender and of course a 1TB hard drive.

Or an AstroBoy leg with a jet engine. But if it were only one leg, you’d be constantly flying in circles.

But another of Ellis’ tweets brought this incredulous reply from me:

“Naked Ninja Nuns?!?” When alliteration goes terribly terribly wrong!!!

Some celebs are just more fun than others, Penn Jillette (or someone claiming to be him) just joined the Twitterazzi, and between immortalizing places he’s eating out, wrote:

Must not engage Democrats. Must not engage Democrats. Must not engage Democrats. Must not engage Democrats. Must not engage Democrats.

I wrote:

Hey everybody! @pennjillette says he “Must not engage Democrats.” I guess that’s Teller’s job.

and

OF course, if @pennjillette engaged EVERYBODY he THINKS is guilty of Bullshit, he’d have zero audience. Including Teller.

It’s good to be a nobody.

Your Turn...
