YM Interns play Celebrity Twitter!
The idea here was to get a response from a “celebrity” on Twitter. Or die trying.
Christian claims that BostonTweet is “a Boston area twitter celebrity. He somehow manages to make a living tweeting about burritos, road closings, and food trucks.” (Oh yeah? WHERE DID HE GO TO SCHOOL?) Naturally, Christian asked about food trucks and got a reply about food trucks. He says “no hashtag can express my disappointment in his response” but I’m not sure what he expected. See that bar over there? Raise it.
Daniel, new to Twitter, took stabs at Chuck Klosterman, Tracy Morgan, Crispin Glover and Louis CK. Yeah, how do you think that went? Crispin Glover has agreed to do a show at the Stone Ballon.
QED, also a first-time Twitterererer, reports (katiebakesishly): “When I was a little girl I knew all seven members of the ‘96 women’s gymnastics team by heart and may or may not have cried when my coach at the local gym gently let me know that I was too tall to ever compete at the Olympics. That emotional pain has faded but so have the teammate’s names: now I can only remember the Dominiques, Shannon, and Kerri. Thankfully those are the only four that have Twitter accounts! None of them responded to me. I’m not letting myself feel too bad this time because it seems that D. Moceanu doesn’t even respond to Kerri and also I enjoy being able to reach things on high shelves.”
YM regrets this assignment, solely for encouraging two people to join Twitter.
