Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die. Today’s contestant is chef, author and TV host, Anthony Bourdain. He hosts two of my favorite shows, No Reservations and The Layover.  How can I not like a guy who talks about food?  Let’s see if his tweets are just as good.


Okay, first, before the tweets, I have to mention two funny Twitter accounts I discover on Anthony’s account.  One is Big Gay Ice Cream and the other is Drunk Hulk.  Awesome.  Okay, here we go.

April 28th:  ““@LisaAbend: Maybe the best travel piece on London I’ve read. By A.A. Gill, of course. http://nyti.ms/JOLKlI” Gill at his best.”

Travel?  Nah.  That’s what I have your show for AB.

April 28th:  “My new job. http://yfrog.com/od71mjrj

There are worse jobs than driving Italian sports cars.  Unless you drive them like this.

April 30th:  “Read this: http://ruhlman.com/2012/04/foie-gras-wars-back-on/

I’ve never understood the appeal of Foie gras.  Probably because there’s no such thing as a Foie Gras cheesesteak.

April 30th:  “Thank you @OttaviaBourdain for not noticing my fly was open all night. Apparently random fan more reliable crotch watch !”

That sounds like a new spin off show.  “Tonight on Crotch Watch!”

12 hours ago:  “Book “Restaurant Man” by @Jbastianich a terrific trench level primer on the biz. He knows where all the bodies are buried!”

Reading or watching TV about food makes me hungry.  Invariably, I end up getting up and cooking myself something.

8 hours ago:  “Awesome ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zjv4rqUTaY

Thanks.  Now I have to make a sandwich.

8 hours ago:  “Even more awesome! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fs4_zylZtTI

And now desert.

Okay, let’s rate Tony’s tweets.  He’s got a lot going on and is pretty interactive.  He’s a writer and the tweets are pretty off the cuff.  Plus, if you’re a fan of the show you get more of an inside scoop.  I just can’t review more or I’ll eat everything in my fridge.  I give AB a 7 for Insanity, 9 for Mustness and 10 for Style.  That’s an overall score of 8.6.  Gotta follow him.  And watch the shows, they’re awesome.  Just make sure you have a snack ready.
