Jason knows why Socks is so popular. Socks (and Jason) were early Twitter adopters to Twitter. Jason mentioned that his cat tweeted in a talk, and it got around. Low and behold, @sockington was put on recommended people to follow by Twitter, and the rest is history. Mystery solved.
A couple of days ago, I tweeted:
RT @sockington: GAHH DISAPPOINTMENT thought I caught a rat TURNED OUT TO BE A SOCIAL MEDIA EXPERT not tasty at all SORRY LITTLE GUY
I’ve been a bit worried that I may have alienated some of the social media people who may have been following me. The question is, do social media people have a sense of humor? Damn the 140 character limit! I wasn’t able to add a smiley face, so I don’t know how they might have taken it. I think that it’s hysterical.
The truth is, the way that people follow other people today, it probably was a small blip that passed by, that nobody noticed. I may be giving myself too much credit to think that they might have noticed in the first place. I still think that it is funny.
