What the hell, there’s nothing else to do.
If nothing else, you can see the value Twitter adds to the world of flamewarring: instead of hitting Refresh, Refresh, Refresh and waiting to see if your opponent has updated his blog/left another comment on yours, Twitter now enables people to make asses of themselves in realtime!
It all started…with this innocuous little post:
So far, so what? you’re probably thinking. Well, nothing. It’s just a link to some video of a fluffy white doggy trying to stay upright on a slidey plastic surface with four doggie shoes on.
And it ended like this:
And in between, now sadly deleted on MM’s part in the Slow Sunday Night on Twitter version of the missing 15 minutes from the Watergate Tapes, there was this:
@MortgageMark I wouldn’t either. That’s just cruel; saddle shoes are SO last year!
@raincoaster mellow out my friend
@MortgageMark I work for Shoeblogs LLC. I take these things seriously!
@raincoaster Listen, my son’s girlfriend bought them as a gift. We tried them on once. Don’t really care what blog you work for, suck it up
@MortgageMark “Suck it up?” Great people skillz, dude. I was JOKING. Chill thyself!
@raincoaster “dude” I guess my people skills aren’t that great. Just kidding, they’re fantastic ; )
and, after the above was deleted, this from me:
@MortgageMark If you trust your people skills, why don’t you apologize instead of just deleting those tweets?
Some things go without saying, you know what I’m sayin’?
