Tripping Along The Ledge


Are these the greatest consecutive tweets ever?

I must admit, I’m belatedly warming to Twitter. One guy who followed me on there (so I reciprocated) posted this the other night. He followed that shortly afterward with this… Tweet2
Talk about opening my eyes to previously unfamiliar subcultures. I had no idea there really was a League of Ireland. I thought it was something funny newscasters just riffed about when they’d run of real news. Like the stockmarket or something. Well, I live and learn.

P.S. For the record, I did check with the owner of those tweet that he was okay with my highlighting their awesomeness. He was.

P.P.S. Apropos of nothing, but am I the only person who kinda regrets ever following @ebertchicago ?? Jesus, try limiting yourself to, say, a thousand tweets a day grandpa!

    Yes! Ebert does Twitter too much. But if I’d lost my voice I’d probably do the same. And he’s still an interesting twittererer.

    Seconded (or thirded!) Jesus that Ebertfest was nearly the end of me and Twitter. Why doesn’t he get one of those Stephen Hawking devices??

  3. Fintan Says:

    Ah come on the man is an institution and he doesn’t have a voice. So what if he twitters a couple (of hundred) more times than is strictly necessary?

    Wasn’t there some story where Freddie Mercury had a party and there were midgets walking around with boards on their heads and lines of coke racked up on them?

    @ Una – yes, Buzz O’Neill is the man responsible. Not only are his tweets the best, but he has the coolest Irish-action-hero name I’ve ever I’ve ever heard!

  7. Eoin Says:

    @ Massey – maybe, but that also pretty much describes my house every Friday and Saturday night

    Jesus you’ll have to give us an invite so..

  9. Eoin Says:

    Well since the recession kicked in most of the midgets have been carrying ferrero rochers on their head. But it’s still a pretty wild scene!

    Buzz is a legend!
