I must admit, I am now addicted to Twitter. No, I don’t post on the said
micro-blogging site every minute, but would now normally check out the site for accounts that will help update me on some topics.
Take the case of the Grammys, since I’ve already started my countdown to the awards show, I decided to check if there is a Grammy Awards Twitter. I found this:
Now I know what I should look forward to on the 8th.
Recently, I’ve managed to follow some people I admire (musicians, authors, etc). Here are a few (had to find out, though if the real person does the Tweets):
Of course there’s John Mayer
David Ryan Harris
So there was a small Tweet exchange between JM and DRH.
Last night, some little devil in me told me to find out if there are fictional Twitters, and — by golly! — I found really interesting ones!
Roger Sterling, who is part of a Role Playing Activity with other characters of Mad Men.
She-Ra: Princess of Power, whose opinions nowadays are far more “open” as compared to the cartoon series I watched when I was a kid.
Indiana Jones, posting about his website, his most recent “documentary” — it’s actually the movie “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” — his father, his fear of snakes, his crush on Lara Croft
and his bag.
Kermit the Frog, who only had a few posts (maybe he’s having a hard time typing using his frog legs – hehe, HEY IT WAS FUNNY).
and MacGyver, who would disappear for months because Phoenix Foundation puts him on “assignment”.
(I don’t follow the Tweets of the fake characters as I don’t want to clog up my TwitterFox, but visiting their sites would be a great de-stressing technique once in a while.)
Anyway, there are still a lot of interesting profiles at Twitter, and I’m sure, if you have an account, you’ll be able to find Tweets that would satisfy your need for additional entertainment.
