I think either Michael Moore trolled his way into the RNC or some dude that had the same name did. I dunno.

I have no idea what foursquare is.

I have no idea what "becoming mayor" means in that sense.

I am old and tetchy and you whippersnappers are eyeing my lawn in a way I don't cotton to, by gum!

Can one of the less techtarded among us esplain a few things here?

Does this have anything to do with Farmville?

Foursquare is a social network where you check in wherever you go. If you have the most check-ins at a particular spot out of everyone who has checked in you become "mayor" of that spot.

I hate nearly every single thing in that headline. So I've got that going for me. Which is nice.

It's one thing to be ignorant -- hey, we can't know everything -- but it's another thing to revel in your ignorance.

Foursquare is an interwebz thing that lets you check into a place via your mobilephone. When you "check in" there enough, you can become mayor.

It's for people who want to be stalked.

Because evidently it's not important enough to tell people when poop is coming out, but you must also tell them where it's coming out.

Well, that's a point well taken. I shouldn't have exposed my apathy.

I am pooping and checking in on foursquare so I am getting a kick out of the replies

/just kidding about the checking in part

And some guy named Micheal Moore who's shop Rmoney's campaign set up next to is now Mayor of Mittville?

K, now I get the joke.

*points at Mitt's campaign and laughs*

Ty, Undflickertail.

/Belt onions are cool.

So we can assume Larry Craig utilizes this?

TY, Ish.

That is, indeed, where most people on foursquare are.

The normal approach to becoming "Mayor" of a particular spot is to visit there the most often. The alternative way, however, is to smear feces or pee on it.

What were you expecting strange as in one you don't usually see or strange as in Oh My what is that thing you should really see a doctor?

And now I see why so few comments.

The only remotely entertaining thing about FourSquare is seeing just how often Steve Wozniak eats at Outback. In other words, it's a useless social network.
 
2012-07-14 05:11:05 AM
Well, it's good that some people in the thread could explain the link.

Foursquare? Mayor visits?

This is the kind of shiat my 3 year olds say and do. I'm proud to be ignorant of this horseshiat.

WizardofToast:

It's a long article do here's the TL;DR version:

A shop owner named Michael Moore has had people give him a hard time for sharing his name with a famous filmmaker. A couple of weeks ago Mitt Romney's presidential campaign set up camp next to Mike's office. Mike didn't think too much of it until he discovered one of the campaign staffers had listed the location on foursquare. Seeing an opportunity for some good humor, Mike decided to finally put his name to good use and play a social media prank. Now, "Michael Moore" is the mayor of Mitt Romney's RNC campaign headquarters in Tampa.

I don't know what that headline means and I don't care to find out.
