Twitter in Focus: B.J. Novakon May 9, 2012 at 12:01 am
Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die! Today’s contestant is B.J. Novak, otherwise known as Ryan from the Office! He’s hilarious on the show, let’s check out his tweets.
Those things terrify me.
May 5th: “y’all get excited too easy, call me when there’s an eclipse”
C’mon. That moon was bright, dude.
May 5th: “oh I’m sure folsom prison is fine quit whining”
You cold, B.J., you cold.
May 6th: “Stop obsessing about your last Polynesian luau — and start focusing on your next Polynesian luau http://pic.twitter.com/XokLC3iN”
We don’t get a lot of luaus on the East Coast here. Massive tiki torch shortage.
May 6th: “Okay I’ll shut my phone off, too bad though because I was writing to American Airlines to tell them you were my favorite flight attendant”
Don’t pull Alec Baldwin. Even he can’t win against the TSA.
May 7th: “I meant to text my friend “how’s work?” but typed “how’s wok” and he’s a Chinese chef but works a French place & never uses a wok ahhhh FML”
At least you didn’t accidentally text “How’s ork?’ Lord of the Rings fans get so offended by that.
May 7th: “All the racist French dudes are always like “hey, where’s your wok?” And you know how he gets back at them? By doing great work.”
I texted a French guy “I am bereft of things to text” but accidentally typed “I am beret of things to text”. He was also offended.
May 7th: “This key change in the middle of “C is for Cookie” is a little pretentious”
That totally sounds like a Ryan text.
May 7th: “Joe Raposo – Wikipedia http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Raposo#section_7”
That man was a genius.
Six Hours Ago: “You don’t have to know what you want to say, you just have to know what you want to talk about”
in 140 characters or less
Two Hours Ago: “Oh man! My Chinese chef friend texted to say he had just finished a 14-hour shift and I meant to text back “Cool” but I wrote “Cook!” FML”
You really gotta lose some finger weight so you can type better.
Okay, let’s rate BJ’s tweets. I give him a 9 for Style, an 8 for Insanity and a 9 for Mustness. That’s an overall score of 8.6. Definitely worth following. It’s like following the character Ryan. (Some of my favorite Office episodes, btw, when Ryan becomes the boss. BJ is actually pretty involved behind the scenes as well.)
