Battle for the LGF Tweet Counter: Episode II

Last night, we posted a pretty entertaining thread to, um, remind everyone (including CJ) that the tweet counter adorning the top of every LGF article actually counts the number of “clicks” on the shortened bit.ly url, and not the real tweets (big, huge difference).

Now, I imagine that Johnson is trying to come up with the best explanation for all this, and we think that he’s going to stick with the “I originally said it was clicks” (which he did, back in ’09), and ignore the fact that he’s recently been referring to the figure as “retweets” for his boasts on twitter and in his own comment section. That’s fine.

And to be fair, even though any casual visitor to LGF would look at the counter at the top and assume that it was counting tweets, if you roll your mouse over the figure, it does tell you the truth:

At least, it does for the front page articles.

You see, to illustrate just how confused CJ apparently is on this very simple issue, we’ll show you what appears when you roll the mouse over the counter on one of the LGF Pages (articles in the member-authored section of LGF):

Yea…might want to fix that.

Update: Hopefully, we may just be the antidote to the poisonous LGF koolaid:

    Also, he might want to re-visit the Weiner Nontroversy, and apologize to everyone for doing 20 posts calling it a fraudulent attack by Breitbart. I mean, since integrity is so important to him.

    “Weiner Resigns” – what a twit!

  2. YankintheEU says:

    Unless I am mistaken, Johnson is also completely wrong about how “right-wing” ChenZhen is, the author of the original weapon of harassment.

    Wow! 1000 retweets on an open thread. I never thought I’d see the day

    Oh I shouldn’t laugh so hard this early in the morning!
    Chen, you and the BRC are making this a whole lot of fun to watch. I spend less time at Jenna.com and that’s prolly good for a man my age. 🙂

  4. garycooper says:

    Chen and the BRC make this one of the most entertaining sites on the web, bar none. Of course, we can’t forget the Fatass…he does his part, too! 😆

    I think we should try to get Chunky a segment on the new Keith Olbermann show. The potential for hilarity is enormous, like his new size XXXL sweatpants.

    • poteen says:

      Ha! Move the focus of DoD to Olbermann. See how long before Charlie’s begging to be ‘stalked.”

  5. beed says:

    Did Charlie change the frontpage cursor-info-thingy and forget to change the one for the pages? I suspect that. Damn you, brc, for not checking this and getting a screen cap prior to chas-tizing Chas. But if I’m wrong, we’re all good. Except for me, of course. I would be wrong.

  6. Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

    Anyone else ever notice how “passive-aggressive” Dork is for constantly pointing out to Chunk what the evil stalkers are saying?

    • beed says:

      Not really. He is being sneaky about it, like John Cleese and “don’t mention the war”. You would almost think he is being tounge in cheek with his “you told’em Charles, you proved once again that you are superior, thank you, Charles, for being such a stand up and honest guy, I love you, your blog is the best, I love you, LGF rocks, you’re really, really honest, Charles” routine.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        Passive-aggressive IS sneaky. By definition.

        I have a newfound respect for Dork. He’s taking the piss.

      • beed says:

        I believe you are correct – or his tounge really _is_ a customized anus attachment, and that I refuse to believe.

        And you’re right – I know shit about passive aggressive, other than it being another dumb fucking pop psychology term frequently used at LGF to diagnose dissenting posters.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        True, that’s what it means over there. Hope I don’t get Dork banned. Or, for his sake, I hope I do.

      • beed says:

        He will do everything in his power not to get banned, including squelching his desire to start kicking and screaming due to the treatment he receives over there. And why is that? Let me explain by applying pop psychology on your ass:

        1. If he were to leave LGF, he would have nowhere to go, or, rather, the nic Dark_Falcon why suffer a painful death. He would have to resurface under a different nic, and you can bet your anus he would be a staunch Republican. BUT
        2. Losing the nic would mean losing his notoriety, because the nic Dark_Falcon is his claim to fame and internet presence and relevance, AND
        3. He loves the fact that he is being mocked here alongside Charles, which makes him feel big and relevant, and he feels protected by the LGF-cult when it comes to us sTaLkErz, THUS
        4. Visiting DoD on an hourly basis while looking for the mention of is nic is his very existence, THEREFORE
        5. Leaving LGF is like leaving life.

        Booo-Ya. In your face!

        It actually does mean something, but then again, so does “retweet”.

    It’s probably people clicking on the bit.ly link in a weird attempt to say that, by explicitly explaining how the retweet function works, Charles is somehow lying.

        All anybody has to do is be logged off of twitter and click on the link. If it increases and you are not logged on to twitter, then it obviously couldn’t have been retweeted. Do you think any of the lizards reading here can grasp that?

    • Juan Epstein says:

      Wow, very good guess, since he doesn’t read DoD.

      But I bet he knows someone who does…..

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      Which means it’s not a “retweet function”, Obdicut. Why can’t you understand that basic fact? I asked you a direct question! Answer me!

  8. Juan Epstein says:

    It’s actually amazing how much they don’t read DoD.

  9. beed says:

    They never read DoD quite frequently. One time, Charles never visited 14 times on a Thursday, and that is not counting never refreshing.

    Roll your mouse over the counter, and tell me what it says.

    2) Evil wingnut stalkers are lying and smearing me. Here’s a tech note post that says the opposite of what I’m now claiming.
    3) I never claimed it was a count of retweets. Here, check the text that appears when you hover your cursor. I just changed it to prove I was always right.
    4) Twitters API is evil, wingnutty, and denies the Serbian genocide. I’m reporting retweets accurately.
    5) The obsessed stalkers are spamming retweet counter with scripts, bots, and clicks, in order to make me look stupid.

    I was able to confirm the difference between the hover text on the front page and the LGF pages. Any way to tell when/if a change was made? Wayback machine is blocked (wonder why)

        Long story short, her son was being deployed overseas from California IIRC. She had know way to see him prior to him leaving, so Realwest, (who did not make it public, no fanfare at all) went out of his way to collect money from other Lizards behind the scenes, and she was able to hop a flight, and see her son before he left.

        When Charles decided to start flushing his blog down the toilet, and witch hunt started, obviously some folks started to stay away. Realwest did drop off without any flounce, was not banned, but I was looking to gather elsewhere with the specific intent of not mentioning LGF at all.

        Once there was word this might be happening, she decided to shit all over him as well as other people of course. The guy never did a damn thing but help her, and she did that. God bless her son, but she is scum.

I remember on one thread, she came over and delivered the Mother Superior “I am ashamed of you” bullshit to Zombie, and I finally had to jump in.

        I never had any interaction with her prior, and none after, but she is truly a neurotic imbecile. Shit, read her blog sometime.

      Yeah, ‘cus he never said it was a duck. Show him where he ever said it was a duck. Just because he posted a picture of a duck doesn’t mean he meant that duck. He was referring to another non-duck.

    Hmmm… I seem to remember something about Charles and TwitterSox… What was that about?

    • ISpeakJive says:

      The magical disappearing twitter-sox. I looked for a few of them the other day, they have not re-surfaced, lol.

    Formercorpsman :She is a nitwit. When all of this was going down, I was stealth banned. I did not end up anywhere right after, but perused some other blogs such as Zombietime, etc. She was going out of her way to attack other old time folks elsewhere. I remember on one thread, she came over and delivered the Mother Superior “I am ashamed of you” bullshit to Zombie, and I finally had to jump in.
    I never had any interaction with her prior, and none after, but she is truly a neurotic imbecile. Shit, read her blog sometime.
    Realwest is a decent guy, with his own situations, and went out of his way to help her. No excuse for what she did.

    I became a “stalker”*** soon after. Her war against CC went on for a while. Ungrateful doesn’t start to cover it, IMO.

    ***”Stalker” – someone who Stalker Charles stalks to another blog.

    Whatever :

    PaulaConnell Paula Connell@@ABC bullied out the door by GOP thugs and Dems who should have had his back. A career destroyed and a family ruined. Pathetic.

    And you’re enjoying this bloodsport? Shame!

    I thought he was bullied out the door by his lies and his obsession with showing his dick to women he wasn’t married to.

    Oh, and apparently his wife, unless one REALLY believes in coincidence.

    Are most of the lefty sites whining about Weiner being “bullied” and “hounded” out of office? I don’t think so. Irish Hose is delusional.

    Check out Pages and Tweetcount now.

    Dum di dum di dum!

      Ah – never mind… It states it correctly at the “main” Pages-page, but is still horribly wrong once you click on a page.

    Hey Chen, did we get a lot of traffic from your expose?

    By the way, Paulians are still trying to inflate Ron Paul’s numbers in our debate poll. It’s hilarious. They’re so freaking crazy.

    Way OT and my excuses for interrupting the Chunk-fest, but I just have to offer a tip of the Stetson to Windie for his brilliant Old West improv downthread. Reminded me of NYC poet Ted Berrigan’s “Clear the Range”, a rare and amphetamine-fueled saga published in the late 60s. Compare:

    http://jacketmagazine.com/16/ah-ber1.html

    Whoever you are son, you’ve got word-talent to burn. Have you considered sending your stuff to the New Yorker or the Paris Review?

    windie :
    They Called him The Loathsome Sir, because he was loathsome, and everyone called him sir
    mostly, people called him sir because he threw machetes around a lot until people started calling him sir
    well anyway, he came into this roadhouse, and the man behind the counter had a spider for a head
    and the Loathsome Sir did his thing, and the man with a spider for a head, well it was the damnest thing
    he’d just catch every machete hurled his way, sure as God made green apples, all calm like
    stacked them in a neat pile until The Sir was fresh out, then he nodded to his wares, a bottle of rye, and a bottle of sheep’s guts.
    ‘Jesus. I’ll have the rye.”
    “Coming right up, sir.” said the man with a spider for a head, somehow
    And the Loathsome Sir smiled.

      brilliant Old West improv ?

      I thought the consensus was post-modern homoerotic techno-western or some such thing….

      One could argue that my toaster oven is a computer.
      It has a microprocessor
      An input device
      It performs calculations
      An information display
      It performs work….

      Hang on a second, my blender’s ringing.

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      Yeah, the ordinary person, reading in an ordinary way, always thinks “he could be talking about a smartphone, too” whenever a blogger writes the word “computer”, because that’s also how writers think when they write. Hell, everyone knows that!

      • Village Idiot's Apprentice says:

        Heck, I’m an ordinary person, and when I see a “Tweet” button, I’m stupid enough to think it’s referring to Tweets.

        Hang on a second….my CAD machine is ringing.

    • Whatever says:

      That’s like saying “aren’t people animals?”. Technically yes, but you wouldn’t call Obama an animal, would you Chuck?

    My fav:

    If you can’t take the heat, don’t tweet your meat.

    As if not publicizing this would have made everything just hunky-donkey in their “family”. Is that the feminist way, Ho? Don’t talk about the transgressions of the male (as long as he’s a prog in good standing) and they don’t matter? Huh, Ho?

    That pathetic old hag will do ANYTHING for a male. ANY male. She’ll pay a drunken bum under a bridge to shag her, and kiss his ass. Lady, give it up. You are way past your expiration date, so embrace the old spinsterhood and buy yourself a dildo.
