@sockington Knows…

20May09

I’ve been having fun with all the twitter coverage that @sockington the cat has. Yesterday I listened to a pod cast with Socks’ (the cat’s real name) owner, Jason Scott. He’s cool.

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.

  1. You make it sound like offending/alienating “Social Media” people is a bad thing.

      I guess it’s a girl thing. We like it when other people like us. Thanks for stopping by.
