Annoying Tweet Of The Day – Nov. 3

“Every time our company blog passes another metric milestone, I celebrate a little. Content wins the game, and some companies never make it.”

I’m a company man, oh yes
A company man, oh yes
If they had a store I’d shop it
If they had a blog I’d read it

I’m a company man, oh yes
A company man, oh yes
If they had a song I’d sing it
If they had a cocktail I’d drink it

You get the general idea. I’ll tell you something shocking about the person who posted this. This person is not part of Gen X. I know, can you believe it?

Annoying Tweet Of the Day – August 2

Foursquare Needs Women (good luck!)… 4x as many men on it now (The Social Graf)”

Good luck, indeed, because Foursquare is lame. Perhaps many women recognize this. They also recognize that broadcasting their whereabouts to desperate Foursquare men is not such a good idea. Duh.

“I’m mayor of the dark alley behind my apartment building. Just taking out the trash all by myself… at midnight.”

“I’m mayor of Meat Market Bar tonight. Because I’m too drunk and helpless to leave on my own!”

“I’m on this lonely, wooded trail that winds through this park where no one seems to hang out. Getting my jog on with headphones!”

Annoying Tweet Of The Day, May 20

“My God. I just heard that census forms weren’t mailed to people living on reservations in Minnesota. What can we do?!”

Hmmm… Here are the options as I see them:

1. Nothing. Because we are terrible people who all hate Indians and if the government don’t count ’em, we can pretend they don’t exist. And btw, Native Americans, stop eating all the fish!!

2. We can send you out to all reservations with stacks of census forms and have you go door-to-door.

3. Become hysterical on social media outlets.

4. Retreat with mugs of green tea, listen to more MPR and ruminate.

5. Go to the Census 2010 website and do a search for American Indian reservations. Come up with a transcript of a press conference during which the question of reservations was addressed by Census Bureau Director Dr. Robert Groves. Due to the fact that many reservations have postal systems of delivery that are quite complicated and housing changes rapidly, census workers are going out to reservations to make sure they have accurate lists of the housing units and to interview people. So, if you live on a reservation, you might not have gotten a census survey in the mail but this does not mean that people are not trying to contact you.

Also: Census Designated Places represent locally-known, unincorporated communities that contain a mix of residential, commercial, cultural, and/or retail uses similar to that of an incorporated place of similar size in a similar geographic setting. The delineation of Census Designated Places allows for the identification of, and tabulation of data for, unincorporated communities within the boundaries of federally recognized American Indian reservations, off-reservation trust lands, and Oklahoma Tribal Statistical Areas.

So, remember, a reservation is not set up like a suburb.

Annoying Tweet Of the Day, April 22

“Today is Earth Day and it’s not even trending on Twitter? I hope your children enjoy… not being born.”

I feel confident when I say that, so far at least, my unborn children have been having a grand time. In fact, just last night they said, “You know, if you  never get around to having us, that’s OK. We don’t want to have to deal with global warming.”

Annoying Ways In Which Annoying People Use Twitter

1. People who are on Twitter to promote things, probably for pay, who think they are being clever in the way they do it:

“Just flattened my hair with the new Blacksmith Iron by Hair Thing Maker and it’s fabulous. My hair hasn’t looked this good since my senior picture.”

“Made a sandwich and didn’t know what to put it in and then saw my new box of ZIPLOC  Super Zip sandwich bags!”

“I love the indie band SOFT PALETTE and their new album KNOCK YOUR TEETH OUT. Got it at WalMart for $8.99.”
