Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus, where media comes to die!  Today’s contestant is Dan Gurewritch, former writer for College Humor, now writer for John Oliver!  Let’s see what he’s tweeting.


September 28th:  “LWT’s piece on migrants & refugees, with a surprise I’ve been smiling about all week. I really like where I work.

Good stuff.  Just like the early days of Daily Show.

October 13th:  “”I loved the hard-science passages in The Martian,” said all of America after *definitely* skimming the hard-science passages in The Martian”

Books?  Do they still make those?

October 23rd:  “something interesting about non-comedy people is they don’t communicate exclusively in ironic lies. v interesting must learn more about this”

What?!  Bunch o’ dicks not lying ironically.  Who does that?

November 4th:  “I mean think about it: he just sat there and kept reading “My Pet Goat.” Unbelievable. cc:

Judging by how bad a president he was, maybe that was the safest option.

November 5th:  “”Ronda Rousey” sounds like a playground rhyme sung by 19th century British boarding school children”

Oh, no, guv-ner!  I gots me a touch of the Rousey!

November 10th:  “I probably won’t ever be as good at anything as the people who make “Fargo” are at making “Fargo.””

Jesus Christ that show was amazing this season.

November 18th:  “Probably the angriest a girl has ever gotten at me was when I said all soap is the same”

Obviously you’ve never broached the subject of shoes.

December 1st:  “Albert Birney is a fantastic filmmaker and delightful human man. Help him expand into a feature film.

That looks pretty crazy.

10 hours ago:  “”Getting a ticket to Hamilton” would be good slang for snorting coke through a $10 bill”

Do you mean Hamilton Station in NJ?  I didn’t know that was a good place to score coke.

5 hours ago:  “The definition of insanity is using the same clichéd quote over & over again and expecting it to be correctly attributed to Albert Einstein”

Or Abe Lincoln.

Okay, let’s rate Dan’s tweets.  I give Dan a 6 for Mustness, a 7 for Style and a 9 for Insanity.  That’s an overall score of 7.3.  Follow Dan.
