Follow Friday

14 May

updating mah twitters

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  Learn more about it in my FAQ. See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here.

I love Twitter. I know there are plenty of people out there who hate it, with good reason, but I really love it. I have been able to keep in touch with friends I don’t see that often and that is invaluable to me. I have also met some kindred spirits and developed a girl crush or two.

Every Friday on Twitter is Follow Friday. It’s mostly out of fashion now, but I still like to do it because I genuinely like to find new people to follow. I like to follow real people (as in, not celebrities) that are funny that can I connect to. This is way harder than it should be.

What I like to do is every Friday I go through my favorite tweets of the past week and I retweet them as a Follow Friday. This way people can see why I think they are so awesome and decide for themselves if this person is a good fit for them. It also gives people props just for being their awesome selves. Here are this week’s picks, in no particular order:

@FakeAPStylebook “Pop Tarts” is a trademark and should not be used to describe generic products such as Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus.

@inversejaik F*ck you, caffeine. F*CK. YOU. And your delicious awesomeness.

@CorporateMonkey We keep passing turtles in the road, and I want to stop and rescue them all. I need to find someone who will accomodate this behavior.

@neiltyson Alas, Isaac Newton died a virgin. A fact offered without further comment.

@kate_librarian Woo hoo! Its payday. oh. *looks at payslip and weeps*

@JerryThomas By “drink responsibly” I’m going to assume you mean “use napkins.”

@wordlust Men are like fish. We must obey any order from Aquaman, no matter how repugnant.

@rydka I just told Daphne that I’d show her a picture of my taco.

@mrpilkington Someone had to say it: red, as a color, totally played out.

@owlpacino Today was surprisingly good, unexpectedly busy and heavy on photographs and hummus. I approve this day.

@rainydangers thinks Elena Kagan is pretty hot. #overshareWednesday

@badbanana Can’t help but think a new British government would have been formed by now if Dumbledore was still alive.

@shinyinfo Hey I’m on some Health Insurance! Time to do some risky shizz!! Knife fight in 5 minutes!

@th3jm4n is having his butt kicked by a cold. Earache? Really body? THANKS FOR REMINDING ME OF A DIFFERENT WAY I CAN HURT.

@LaurelKS Major props to my intelligent auto complete for making my drunk tweets possible.

@notbrandoncrane I just chugged a whole rockstar juiced. I’m guessing a lot of useless stuff is gonna get done in the next hour

    I love your FF/Twitter recaps.

      I’m so glad! I post so many at once that I wonder if people get irritated by the flood. But it’s an awesome flood!

    I love your FF’s too! No one else I know does them with any regularity (or volume), and so many of the people you follow are fun to read. I actually clicked on @JerryThomas’ tweet and discovered he’s in Alexandria, Va too! Crazy!

      For some reason I ended up following a whole lot of people on the East Coast. This always makes me feel like a slacker because everyone’s been tweeting for hours before I log on in the morning.

        Which is funny, because I’m usually still up reading your evening tweets- a reminder that I still seem to live on PST.

        Actually, I’ve noticed that and been glad you were awake to play WWF with me! HA!
