The Form of "Tweets"
I had to cancel my Twitter account the other day because it was infiltrated by a virus. I received a direct message on Twitter from ex-Trek/VW Pro and current Trek test-pilot Travis Brown. Of course I was a little bit excited to get this message: "OH MY GOD, Travis Brown knows who I am!" I was stoked, I have to admit. His message went something like this: "You look funny here." And there was a link to a photo "on Twitter," so I excitedly went and logged into "Twitter," with my username and password. Brilliant. I did the same thing once with my Paypal account, it didn't go well. But you know what Ol' George W. said: "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again."
Ah, it's an oldie but a goody, I miss that guy. What's he been up to? Can't he just show up on talk shows once in a while and say something stupid? Or at the very least run over a Scottish cop with his bicycle now and then?
But ya, you can get fooled again...well I can anyway.
The link was apparently fake, it definitely didn't go anywhere, I was a little baffled...until I started getting emails from friends saying "this link is bullshit, isn't it?" All of them were a lot quicker than I was, they knew some evil robot in Myanmar was after their passwords.
At least this time I only had to delete a Twitter account I wasn't using anyway. During my two months on Twitter I "tweeted" exactly twice.
My two "tweets":
"Not tweetering, until further notice."
"There's nothing to see here, it's all happening over here (link to Big Bikes).
So Twitter wasn't really working for me. I don't have an iphone or some other fancy mobile communication device, and tweeting from your desktop computer is like making fried chicken at home and then putting it into a big white and red striped bucket, it's just weird.
So, without further ado, I present to you the top eight (because we can't afford ten) Big Bikes posts condensed into "tweets."
