Well, that makes sense. You can spank your monkey...you can't spank twitter.

Excuse me while I get my monkey out of quarantine, baby.

If you didn't put your monkey where it didn't belong, it wouldn't have been an issue.

I just figured he'd leave it there and make it someone else's problem.

I almost want to feel sorry for the poor, dumb bastard.  Then again, he's so full of himself that it's actually kind of enjoyable watching his inevitable collapse into reality.

By their criteria my twitter account is "fake".

Arthen: By their criteria my twitter account is "fake".


Mine is almost fake, good thing I don't talk too much about my diet.

But seriously, I use Twitter mostly for Gearbox's throwaway of Golden keys for Borderlands 2!

By the sounds of it, the "fakes" are accounts used to advertise.

Will tweet such things as "I luv diet Pepsi-keeps me thin and sexxay" or such. Not the first time this has been done, not the last. People are paid to have accounts on certain boards and subtley hock products. A board for new parents might have an account where "a mom" posts a few times a week and occasionally slips in comments about how her twins are doing so well now that she switched to Happy baby less burp formula and Cushies diapers and wipes....no rashes like like the other kind.Oh, and here's a link with coupons!You get the idea.

No, the bad news is that the other half of his followers are real people.

by their reckoning my twitter account is fake, since

a) I only have one follower (gawd knows why they follow me, i rarely tweet anything)

b) I follow less than 50 people (a few authors, celebs, magicians and a Queen (Rania, of Jordan))

/but i dont follow bieber

yeah they're math seems farked up.  There stupid.  Their are lots of people that fall into those categories.

Just because someone put it on the internet doesn't make it valid.

Yeah that caught my eye too.  Except for common spam phrases, the other factors are pretty weak.  I signed up for Twitter to only follow one person, a friend of mine who is a sports director at a station in Washington.  I have zero followers, so I must be a bot.  I certainly never bothered to update my profile picture; I don't expect anyone to be looking me up.

My niece says it's not his fault he acts so damn crazy. Allegedly his record label has him on estrogen so his voice doesn't change. O_o

Important point: Remember the last singing celebrity that had a pet monkey?

This is not going to turn out well.

Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
