That damned Twitter

What's Mallard raving about today?

Twitter.

Guess who just discovered Twitter?

Guess who doesn't understand how Twitter works?

Did Tinsley just do two comics back to back with no politics? That's actually kind of shocking.

Tog said...

He's been running light on his usual political vitriol all week now; sure, there was the "czar" strip and "concerned citizens, not angry mob" whiner, but nothing even close to the venomous hostility of the recent OBAMA WANTS 2 KILL UR GRAMMA!! and LIBRALZ R TEH REAL RACISTS!!1 nonsense.

It's almost like he fell down, struck his head, and had a "Regarding Henry" moment.

Maybe he's figured out that Glenn Beck represents a future he wants no part of after all.

Or maybe Robert Novak's fate (so similar to that of Lee Atwater) has him a little afraid that there is a God, and He has a vicious sense of humor.

Whatever the reason, I'm sure it won't last.

Anyway, what DaveyK said. Jesus, Tinsley, I've never tweeted in my life (not that way, anyway) and I know that's not how Twitter works. Aren't you the guy who keeps telling everyone else to Google stuff?

Even the gov't knows more about twitter than Mallard.

But anyways, that was big news what, 6 or 7 months ago where Twitter was included in everything as the older population finally caught on?

Wow. Went to Tinz's Twitter page.

Total of two posts; one from the beginning of August, the other yesterday (in expectation, I'm sure, of the avalanche of follow requests today).

Thirteen followers, including some autospambots.

As for the 53 people HE follows, the only surprise is that he doesn't follow Michelle Bachman.

My rule of thumb: If you follow more people than follow you, you're a loser. (Full disclosure: I'm a loser too, by my own reckoning.)

There. I visited his Twitter page, so you don't have to.

It's hard to find anything more pointless than a Blallard strip. IMHO, Twitter qualifies.

Then Blallard quips about Twitter.

Life imitates fart.

What a TWIT!

@Tog
Maybe he's been drinking too much, or not enough. I forget how it works with him. The point is, he hasn't been drinking the exact right amount.

And the reichwing continues its campaign to look stupid to young people!

Heck of a job, Tinkley!

You had me at Tinshley discovered Twitter.

I NEED .. A DRINK.

HT said...

...This comic doesn't even begin to make any fucking sense. You can't follow yourself on Twitter, and even if you COULD, it would be pointless, as your own posts show up in the middle of every else's tweets of the people you watch.

This is just... ugh. I still can't believe newspapers run this garbage.

Iron Dragon said...

Odd, you'd think that if he was going to do something on twitter he'd pick something more relevant. Like how Twitter helped to maintain a revolution and get news out in Iran. In this case though he merely makes twitter equivalent to narcissistic navel gazing.

Nick said...

Iron D, that would mean Tinz would have to say something positive about something.

As I've mentioned on this blog before, Tinz never presents anything positive about things he likes; only negative grumbling about things he hates.

Which is pretty much everything outside of his increasingly-small Fortress of Crazytude.

Factinista said...

It is pretty funny that he considers himself important enough to be on the White House's (nonexistent) enemies list.

I understand why the post on Mallard Fillmore's desk chair juts up so far beyond the top of the backrest -- he's a duck, so the backrest height has to be set much lower than it would for a human being.

But why does this man's chair exhibit the same design flaw? Did he buy it at Robert Wadlow's estate sale?
