Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die!  Today’s contestant is Ryan North, creator of Dinosaur Comics.  He’s not just a pretty webcomic face, let’s see what he’s tweeting.


May 16th:  “There’s gonna be a Super Mega Comics collection! I muscled in to write the introduction:”

Nice!  He probably beat up the other creator too.  It’s half the reason we get into webcomics so we can beat up guys with lower hits.  I’ve been beaten up by Pete at Sluggy Freelance dozens of times.  But that’s the rule.

14 hours ago:  “I had dinner with and he made an art to commemorate the occasion!! Me and and Chompsky!”

Nice.  As a writer, I always write a novel about the people I dine with.  Needless to say, I don’t go out much.

13 hours ago:  “- ryan north height – ryan north tallest man – ryan north hole – ryan north still handsome – ryan north best friend position open”

I’m going to say, six foot, no, somewhere in Alberta, possibly and aww that’s sad.

11  hours ago:  “We’re doing a Romeo and/or Juliet sweeps! Pre-order the book, get RAD ART by GREAT ARTISTS

Interesting.  So will there be robotic sharks and zombies in this potential version?

11 hours ago:  “this sounds so good and I want to read it RIGHT NOW https://twitter.com/EvilMarguerite/status/732629712279756801”

Maybe she should post it on the web.

8 hours ago:  “Let’s play Romeo and/or Juliet! Today you can RT to chat up some dudes, or fav to ignore the friggin’ dudes”

The whole concept sounds fun.  I think Shakespeare would’ve been proud and/or happy to sue you.

7 hours ago:  “I want to do a cameo in ‘s The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl when she visits Canada. Justin, DM me, let’s make this happen”

So many Marvel movies coming out.  I hope she beats the f*ck out of Thor.

7 hours ago:  “. i know when you click my bio it mostly describes my butt, but i promise you i’m an actual comic book writer”

Every time I try to contact my country’s leader, I just get angry threats from the NSA.

2 hours ago:  “We’ve decided to make the most beautiful kettle and give it the grossest name. Introducing: SMEG

Be careful, you may be sued by the producers of Red Dwarf.

Pinned Tweet:  “*USB inventor tries 1st prototype* *doesn’t go in* *other way doesn’t work too* *tries the first way, works now* USB INVENTOR: this is fine”

That’s a good one to pin, bro!

Okay, let’s rate Ryan’s tweets.  He’s a funny dude, no doubt.  His account also has some behind-the-scenes, which I enjoy.  I give Ryan an 8 for Style, a 9 for Insanity and a 10 for Mustness.  That’s an overall  score of 9.  Follow Ryan and read his comics.
