Why I Tweet

Jeff Swain recently published a video asking others why they Tweet, so I figured I would respond. As usual, it’s hard for me to be serious about anything, especially through video, and despite two takes at a response I still think I failed. But hey, I’m the bava, and my theme is clean 🙂

  1. Jeff says:

    You da man! Thanks Bava!

  2. Scott Leslie says:

    Why do you tweet? Because you crave the smack talk we lay on you every time you open your mouth, cowardly amerikan. And you don’t blog enough to get what you need through blog comments, much as we try to satisfy your masochistic needs here too. But please don’t stop tweeting – you are single-handedly responsible for raising the self-esteem of thousands of canadians by regularly highlighting our innate superiority (especially on the hockey rink.) Bitch.

    My pleasure.

    Looks like you are getting the hang of this smack talking thing, probably because you learned from the best: “El Bava” or “The bavarino” if you are not into the whole brevity thing.

    Heh…’interstitial space’ is where stuff collects in your body & causes swelling. How appropriate for the Bava…as in head swelling and such. 🙂

    Sad but true.

    @Tom- I am glad you preserved that clip; I was shocked to hear those words myself (in some order).

    @bava- wow, are you looking stressed in video 1, all that head massaging, it is obvious this strain of being trapped in your kludgy circa 2005 theme is actually hurting your soul. C’mon, you want a new theme, admit it!

    What happened to your head?

  9. Jim says:

    Your head looks awesome.

  10. Stein says:

    I just saw a photo–allegedly of @Alan–wherein the face region was entirely waxed and glossy. See, I get these mental images all set and in my mind and then you all screw with them. Who’s next? Downes?

    P.S. “Microbrand”. heh.

    Very glad to hear you finally admit that twitter is evil. But even here you afford it a singular power or reach that it simply doesn’t deserve. The evidence is clear: I, for instance, am frequently highly annoyed by you and mad at you, even though I don’t follow your feed or indeed use twitter at all.

  12. Interesting that you talk about hating twitter and how it kills blogging. When Jeff asked me to do this it took me awhile.

    I am someone who falls in and out of twitter love and I wasn’t sure what I could say, like giving a eulogy when you know damn well your family is dysfunctional (sure there are good points, but what about the elephant in the room?). I had a blog post queued and ready to explain my sentiments at the height of my disillusionment with it, and I ultimately pulled it.

    I revisited why I keep going back and came up with some positives, but ultimately we can’t be blinded by the “Twitter evangelism.”
