Hideo (Birthday Suits) hooked up with Dave and Hamilton (Whatever Forever) and now there's a new punk band for me to try to attend every show they do (and fail spectacularly). I am one of FIVE followers.
Let me introduce you to tonights winners: Stacy Dash Is A Vampire and Spray Cheese On Bugles! It was a fun one.
(Drinking With) Ian runs pub Trivia on Tuesdays. I have finished in the money as many times I have not. (This week I was part of "Bugles with Spray Cheese" - close enough, Ian - and a crop from the photo he failed to attach to this tweet is now my new Twitter avatar.)
Shelton said "hi" to me at a Timberwolves game and I was bewildered because I had no idea she was behind this account. By rule, if you recognise me from Twitter in person I WILL follow you. She's about 95% retweets and 100% Timberwolves - which is right up my alley, actually
My man from Southampton - friend of friends, came over to watch some Timberwolves games, so I asked him if he needed to kill any time. We killed some time and a few brews. He plans onregular holidays here and I'm happy to meet him anytime at Target Center. He's a fair DJ as well!
Well, now I'm back to 611. I'm about ready to dump some "way too many political tweets" people and I still need to cull the NASCAR from my timeline but I really need a good chunk of time to audit my followings and/or reread this thread. Probably during the holiday break. STAY IN TUNE
I started using Twitter so I could tweet from my phone and have it cross-post to MySpace, then Facebook. It's basically me trying out jokes, plugging comedy shows, plugging my area's indie rasslin, and other random stuff that pops into my head.
@patrickab7, if you feel like filling a spot in your follow list.
Twitter says I'm at 581 so I either forgot to tell you I unfollowed somebody or somebody disappeared - fortunately I have nothing but time so let's figure out who it is...oh, right, I unfollowed Kevin Love because all his tweets lately seem to be promoted and I don't need that. Funny, I remember TWEETING that I was unfollowing him but never mentioned it HERE. Clearly, I have problems with my priorities.
Friend of a friend - I'm not totally sure I've met her in real life or not, but at least the next time it happens I can say "WOW I FOLLOW YOU ON TWITTER!" and make an even worse immediate impression than I normally would
I'm truly amazed that Blancmange (a) is on Twitter and (b) apparently has a new album coming soon. Clearly following them is what Twitter's all about!
I'm at 585, so nobody's blocked me today. Did you know we recently passed the five year anniversary of BT blocking me? Good times. I've also been blocked by a Timberwolves podcast who I (I thought) politely asked their founder to please stop spamming me - he got a little butthurt and blocked me with not one, but TWO accounts - and yet, I still see ads for his podcast in my timeline because apparently other people can still retweet him/them and I still see it. So much for blocking. (I still haven't bothered to listen to their podcast!)
Rumored to be signing/have signed a 10-day with the Wolves from the D-League's Toronto 905 - his feed is almost entirely Instagram tweets, so I don't know if I'll stick with him if he doesn't catch on with the team - STAY TUNED
I'm getting a little obsessed with hashflags - the quasi-emojis Twitter decides to add for certain hashtags. This account looks like the best way to track them since Twitter tends to "easter egg" them out. (Interestingly, they ALSO don't appear in embedded tweets, I just learned!)
Unfollowed @BoydHuppert for too many teases of an upcoming story - I wonder if KARE/TEGNA has some social media policy telling their personalities what a good idea it is to tweet the same damn crap once an hour until I unfollow them
Dan's husband Julie ended up at the show I was at last night and we ended up talking about weird Twitter, and I realised I wasn't following her. She only retweets, so she warned me to keep my expectations low. But talk turned to...
Meanwhile, the Timberwolves digital team has put together a sizzle reel site for Karl-Anthony Towns to run away with the Rookie of the Year. This probably won't hurt, but I'm not sure it'll help - he HAS to have it in the bag already, doesn't he? Anyway, I'll probably regret this follow but I'm a good fan - at least, I am today.
