Does @Lizardoid Know His Tweets Are Featured At HuffPo?Posted: January 30, 2011
There’s something weird going on in the Lizardoid Twitterverse lately, as The Boiler Room has noticed that the “followers” have been increasing at a faster-than-usual rate. We had engineer No. 3 take a closer look, and sure enough, CJ is almost keeping pace with the Shrieking Harpy and R.S. McCain:
And look, he’s almost catching up to Patterico!
And then we saw this sitting in the “chest beat” file, 3 days ago:
That is quite a jump to suddenly go from 1400ish to 1600ish within a few weeks, considering that the account was opened almost 2 years ago. What happened?
Well, we couldn’t find any mention of it in the LGF comments section, but our favorite anonymous DoD commenter brought to our attention that the Lizardoid is having his tweets featured at The Huffington Post!
They show up in that neat scroll bar at the top, and have their own comment section and everything. I even spotted one of his #nowplaying tweets on there (and as you can see, he must have blocked a few followers; he’s below 1600).
But, naturally we wonder if he is even aware of this, ’cause The World’s Greatest Blog Search Engine™ couldn’t find where Charles had announced anything or otherwise mentioned it. On Google, I had a real hard time finding any of these that were older than a few weeks ago, so the consensus is that it has to be a fairly recent development. But why haven’t we heard about it? Wouldn’t ya think that, if he’s gonna brag about the twitter followers, he’d mention this cool new gig at HuffPo?
I mean, us LGF old timers remember him talkin’ about that site all the time.
Well…Okay. But at least they’re not like a hate site or anything, right?
Oh, forty three forceful updings for that one….absolutely a hate site.
Um, CJ?…about those Twitter followers….
