100,000. 250,000. 500,000 Twitter followers.

It's an egotistic illusion. It's like a guy that stuffs a sock in his pants to make the ladies think he has a huge dingaling!

"I'm happy as heck that "the sock" touched so many people!"

Money, Power, and "The Sock" make the world go round...

Hysterical Yoni. I too am a fan of the sock! Whether Twitter or something else it symbolizes not being yourself.

Great post Yoni.

Funny and yet so true.

How true Yoni and yet every day people tweet about getting more followers and fans. Your way with words do make me laugh and your mention of the sock took me back to my uni days when at a night club a guy would always be there with a football sock down his pants. He seemed very proud of that sock.

Susan,

I have to smile and beam with pride. I'm happy as heck that "the sock" touched so many people!

Hi Yoni.

I doubt it's the same guy I'm thinking of, but he reiterated that his followers were all 'targeted'. What about latent redirects - the favorite ruse of the spam site on Twitter. You think you're following 'Honest' Jimmy-Joe Shmeckelhedd III (w/his smiling visage, and bio stating only that he loves dewy mornings), but lo & behold, in 10 days "he" re-directs into a drug site. Beware of url shorteners - they're tailor-made for redirects!

Duncan,

Actually probably a combination of about 4 to 5 people and articles. Yeah, I've seen Shmeckelhedd, Mr and Mrs, in the form of hookers, porn actresses and the like. Ahhh, I love the smell of Twitter in the morning!

Thanks for reading and commenting!

It’s like a guy who stuffs a sock down his pants to impress the ladies. “Look gals…I have a big dingaling!” The fact is, “No you don’t! You have a sock in your pants making it look like you have a big dingaling!”

L.O.L.

Glad you liked that Ben. I like it too, though feel that I probably lost a lot of Big-Time Twitter friends.

Oh, that's right. Not true. Don't think I really even know anybody with more than about 3,000 tops. I'm sure they'll forgive me.

"Whehhh" he says with an audible sigh of relief.

Thanks for stopping by!

Yoni,

This is classic! Big laughs all around and great commentary on all of those sock stuffers!

Rush,

Not a classic; not a word that suits my thinking. Humorous, a little bit crude, and somewhat out of the ordinary...I can live with that.

Yup, ditch the socks...it's not the size of the Twitter boat, it's the motion...

Yup, you know.

You had me at Dingaling ;) Absolutely brilliant post, although you have now presented me with a problem.

I've a sneaking suspicion the next time someone starts spouting their followers...I wont be able to stop myself from a checking out their package.

You bad bad man *smacks forhead repeatedly trying desperately to erase image*

Seriously great post, you're in fine form thanks for making me laugh :)

Jackie,

Just so you know...my 81 year old mother reads my posts. When I speak of things such as socks in pants, green boogers, boobs, butts and weiners in a business context, she does not find the humor that you do.

She seems to utter the phrase "I'm mortified" quite often.

Oh well :(

You just made alot of peoples day with this one Yoni. I love the satire and the rawness and the just not caring whose feet you step on. I'm going to print this out and share it around our office as a lot of us are on Twitter and care about such things, maybe way too much.

Dorothy,

Thank you! If I made at least one person chuckle, I feel as though I have done my job!

Feel free to pass the article around, just remember that I hold the legal rights to this work and I prosecute to the fullest extent of the law!

Just kidding.

Anyhow, thanks for reading and leaving a comment.

Yoni, you are truly in a class of your own. This is really the way I wish other people would write. Great job!

Braden,

Thank you. If I am in a class by my own, it is probably detention!

Many other people write like this, though most don't visit an opium den for inspiration. (Just kidding. This is a drug-free blog...though it is often fueled by a pint of Guinness.)
