Each week I make sure to check out my list of Twitter followers. It’s amazing to see a diverse group of friends, moms, bloggers, business owners, all around funny people, politically conservative marksmen, ….<<<screech>>>. Did you just hear me skid off the road?
Is this what happens when I unlock the security on @MamaSleeveShirt? Now, if the President of a seniors group wants to listen to me crack jokes, retweet funnies, or rant about direct mail, then I guess I really shouldn’t judge. But somehow, I think his 13 year old granddaughter set up his Twitter account and started following anyone and everyone in the Twitterverse.
But @ isn’t even the most obscure follower I have. 7 out of 7 of @SebastianRITD ‘s tweets have included the word “pizza”. @MyTrainerBob would not approve. For that matter, neither would @ Dude, expand your palette.
But actually, isn’t that what he’s doing by following me? Maybe he might just be encouraged to cook by a RT of mine from @ or see that pizza dough exploded in my fridge yesterday which inspired me to tweet:
Out I go, to expand my palette, and follow a bunch of crazy new friends. Join me?
