Come to Me, My Twittering Friends!

After a 6 month hiatus and a pep talk from this smiling fellow, I've decided to return to Twitter. Why? I'm not sure. I still think Facebook's commenting system is superior...I like commenting on other people's status and photos more than I like posting my own...but I'm willing to give it another go.

The thing with Twitter is it has a ton of entertainment potential, but so many people do it poorly. I realize the minutiae of life angle has been beat into the ground, but it's true.

When done well, though, Twitter works. I'm partial to Stephen Colbert, Fake Rick Reilly and The Sneeze (though the latter is a bit confusing).

All that's to say, if you're on Twitter, you should follow Aaron Donley.

Here are a few reasons:

1.) His ability to craft tiny, brilliant and hilarious phrases is well-suited to Twitter's format.
2.) He is sad that, even though he just started, I am the only one following him.
3.) He has a camera phone.

I can guarantee, with almost 68% accuracy, you will not regret this decision. Tell your friends, too.

You can also follow me. I'll be posting various clips previously featured in our "The Editor" column, as well as other assorted sundries of life, like when I mow my lawn or singe all my arm hair off. (The Editor feature will be back eventually, by the way...I'm just keeping it on the downlow for the time being.)

Oh, and you can always follow this blog, and be updated every time we post.

  1. yeah, the main problem i have with twitter compared to facebook is the commenting. having twitter update your facebook status is kinda the best of both worlds.

  2. I'm on twitter by accident. And people sign up to follow me. And I don't know why. I tried to sign in to Twitter the other day and after 5 attempts at signing in, I gave up.

    I'm sorry my Twitter friends.

    Besides, facebook has ruined my ability to blog. What would a twitter addiction do?!

  3. I love that I can Twitter and update Facebook. And since I get emails from Facebook telling me that people have commenting, I (almost) never miss a beat.

    And now that I can follow Jordan and Aaron, I'm set!
