The Best of Twitter

One of the hardest things - I find - is finding people to follow that make a difference, in some way. Excluding friends, things to follow are REAL hard to find. Depending what you want to get out of Twitter there is something for everyone but sometimes - as with blogging - you don't know what you want to find but know you want SOMETHING.

The problem using using's lists is that it is merely the who's who of pop culture shit.


You see my problem. So, my question. Just how do you REALLY find the best of the best?.

Here's a couple I HIGHLY recommend.

@shitmydadsays - Dude's father that's FULL of comedy gold. Examples...


"Waking up when you got a baby, you feel like you drank a bottle of whiskey the night before, except the shit's in someone else's pants."

"I found some shit in your room...No, I found actual shit. Feces...Well I should hope it's from your shoes, otherwise what the fuck?"

"Don't ask for my opinion then. I said congrats on the car, just saying nobody's panties are getting wet from a fucking Honda Accord."

"HIDDEN roaming charges? Jesus, Sprint has 'fucking people' down to a science, like they practice it in a fucking lab on mice first."

And this one is one of the miracles of modern science. The thing that shits me about it is that this dude can Tweet from fucking SPACE but I can't call my home phone with my mobile standing next to the fucking thing. Thank you VODAFONE.

Anyway, he's an astronaut on the international space station.

Awesome. Click on links that say 'twitpic' on his page.

Anyone got some for me?.


  1. Shitmydadsays is great. These are some funny ones:




  2. Up till now I have been limited in my twittering, a bit here and there, like when they were twittering a zombie apocalypse. But if there is old out there like this I may have to go back to it.

    Sorry I can't offer anything else to your search.

  3. I hear consistently brings the Fckn Win.

  4. ROFLMAO. I've heard that .... from him.

    J to the En. Already had a run in with ya mate Chad. lol Re: the 30 used condoms. I said I wouldn't touch him with a fire hose let alone high five him.

    Thanks Barnsey matey. Hope to see ya on there some time.

  5. HI Moko,

    Oh man, yes, I LOVE shitmydadsays as well. I heard they're going to make it into a tv show but , meh, that *could* spoil it (maybe not I guess). Why does mainstream culture always have to overdo a good thing ?
    I feel the same way about trying to find true gems in amongst the pile. When there's millions of things it really is a case of millions of things and it loses meaning. Somebody said to me one day the internet is 2000 miles wide and only 2 inches deep. So true. But I'll let you know if I find something at Twatter.
    I find most of the good links are at Facile Book so I follow them there. I think it's because they're circulated by friends who are themselves interesting, rather than by mass media cynics.
    Cheers, Abigail

  6. Dr Yobbo- lolz. yes, that's a win.
    Moko , again- were you serrious whne you said you don't like Chad so much? I tried to get into him on JB's pitch but so far it isn't happening for me either.
    See, I really enjoyed a character Brad Pitt played in Burn After Reading (great movie). Brad played Chad and truly I think it was such a good idea that it's ruined me for all other Chads. lol. Abi-again
