Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die!  Today’s contestant is Hawkeye, AKA Alan Alda!  Let’s see what he’s tweeting.


April 16th:  “Really excited. My podcast starts July 10. I’ll be talking with fascinating people about relating and communicating. Some are famous fascinating people, but all have insight into making ourselves understood by those who are most important to us – in every area of life. Tune in.”

Welcome to the Internet.  If you post on YouTube, don’t read the comments.  Trust me.

April 17th:  “People are coming up with great ideas. Who else should Interview on Clear+Vivid? Let’s crowdsource a great lineup. People insightful about relating and communicating with others. They’ll be glad to know your want to hear from them.”

Jordan Peterson, although he’s pretty busy right now.

April 18th:  “Take a look at the snappy new landing page of my website – thanks to my daughter Eve.

It’s a nice site.  Good job!

April 30th: A plaque on a rock in the park. There’s an idea – Let the light in all the way down to our roots.”

For a second, I thought the quote was from Theodore Roosevelt.

April 30th:  “Congratulations, Rita and Tom! You only have 31 to go to catch up.”

Looks like Joe vs. the Volcano vs. the DaVinci Code.

May 2nd:  “The Clear+Vivid podcast goes online July 10. I’d love more ideas about who I should interview. Conversations about relating and communicating in all parts of our lives. At home, at work, breaking up, starting up – doctors, teachers, hostage negotiators. (You never know.)”

You know, Radar from M*A*S*H* could type the reply on Twitter before your tweet.  Just sayin’.

May 4th: This made me laugh. A treacle-cutter, as Danny Thomas used to say.”

I think a show reunion on the podcast would be fun.  Frank Burns eat worms!  Sorry, just had to say that.

Okay, let’s rate Alan’s tweets.  I give him a 7 for Mustness, a 7 for Insanity and an 8 for Style.  That’s an overall score of 7.3.  Follow Hawkeye.
