Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die! Today’s contestant is comedian Mike Birbiglia. He’s funny on stage, let’s see how his tweets stack up!
March 15th: “In movies when someone gets shot and his buddy is like “stay awake, bro!!” I’m always sympathetic with the shot guy who wants to take a nap.”
It’s true, bros. Dying people are sleepy.
March 15th: “Saturday night is perfect for writers because other people have “plans.””
And most of them are just jacking it too.
March 15th: “Saturday wins “best day” 47,000th week in a row.”
Agreed. And Monday loses for the 47,000th time.
Sounds like a cool show. Y’know, except the part about having to go to Ohio.
March 16th: “I know it’s obvious but um…people just die.”
Bullshit! You mean just other people die.
March 16th: “No one is attractive when they yawn.”
Shit. Even Yasmine Bleeth?
March 17th: “(via
@AP) Garfield retracts offensive comments about Mondays: “I regret generalizing about Mondays. I’ve just had some bad experiences.”"
God damn dayist cat!
I like his new bit in Broad City. The role suits him.
March 17th: “Never thought I’d have to google “make my computer stop talking.”"
I agree. And I feel bad about his name.
24 minutes ago: “My novel is somewhere in these eleven thousand tweets, but I’m not sure of the order.”
God dammit. Picking the title will be a nightmare.
Okay, let’s rate Mike’s tweets. Lots of jokes, minimal plugs and he gave a good suggestion for next week. I give Mike a 9 for Mustness, a 9 for Insanity and a 9 for Style. 9 Overall, solid rating. Follow Mike.
