Last month we had self-righteous anti-television snobs, ‘content strategy’ types claiming they ‘think’, and community college snobbery from Toys ‘R Us retail employees. Has Twitter become any less of a self-involvement fest as we closed out 2011?
Of course not! Here are some of the best twits, er, Tweets the egotistical and clueless have to offer us.
(ED. note: Like the Facebook Fail-Log, due to an editorial oversight — i.e., I, Cajun Boy, forgot to schedule it — this feature is running a few days late. Please accept our apologies. Now let’s laugh at people who do and say dumb things on Facebook, shall we?)
@ Reply: Actually, it sounds like the definition of a jerk.
Character Overage: We’ll give him credit, he’s a Canadian lobbyist and somehow has found the money to fly first class for a while. Maybe he’s also a male prostitute?
@ Reply: No, no, it’s never a loss when you cut a self-righteous fundamentalist from your Twitter feed.
Character Overage: For those unfamiliar, Rebecca Watson is a feminist blogger who spoke about sexism in the atheist community on a panel, got hit on in an elevator, and complained it made her uncomfortable. For making a fairly common sense point about how propositioning a woman you don’t know alone in an elevator is kinda creepy and scary, she got buried under sexist comments by self-righteous atheists. In other words, it’s a typical Internet flame war that any grown adult should know better than to bother getting involved in.
@ Reply: Generally when you grow up, you become more responsible.
Character Overage: Also, when you grow up, you don’t have a Tumblr that looks like Vogue ate a feminist website and puked.
@ Reply: You used the wrong parenthesis.
Character Overage: “I didn’t ask to be a princess but if the tiara fits…” is how her profile opens. Then you discover she manages a sports bar.
@ Reply: Awwww, does snookums not get the Internet?
Character Overage: Funny how being a total jerk on the Internet and gloating about connections you don’t actually have comes back to bite you. This is the account if Internet infamous Paul Christoforo, a bully who got what he deserved.
