Gus_802 Sets Twitter/Comment Record(?) Then Blows Chunks All DayPosted: June 4, 2014
Mr. Prolific may have set a new record in manic Tweeting and commenting on Little Green Footballs. Y’all know who we’re talmbout. Gus. Gus_802. THE GUS.
THE GUS who spills his life story on LGF and Twitter, who supplanted Sharmuta, Irish Rose, LVQ and Kilgore Trout. The guy who was evicted from his apartment in San Diego, moved in with his sister in Los Angeles. The guy whose sister threw him out of her place, and who complained that his family wouldn’t give him any money. The guy who moved to Denver and complained that his roommate put up visqueen between his side of the hovel and the other because Gus wasn’t chipping in for the heating bills. The guy who turned down legitimate job offers by yours truly and others.
THAT GUS. Hell, we even have a category for him. @Gus_802.
So back to the topic. Here’s an unemployed guy sitting around in a slum pad in Denver feeling sorry for himself, turning down legitimate job offers and bitching about his lot in life, so The Boiler Room Crew took a peek.
(Yeah, we stalked Gus_802 for 12 hours, but it only took us 20 minutes.)
Before we get to the meat of this post, here’s a fun challenge. Guess how much time Gus_802 spent tweeting and commenting on Little Green Footballs in this 12-hour period. Better yet, guess his posting frequency. Even better, guess how many comments and tweets Gus_802 cranked out in a mere 12 hours. Take your time, give it your best shot. The answer is below the break.
From 8AM to 8PM Tuesday 3 June 2014, Gus_802 jammed over 250 Tweets and ReTweets and posted an additional 100 comments on the main threads of Little Green Footballs. That’s an stunningly manic rate of 350 comments in 720 minutes, or about one comment every two minutes on average!
Here’s an all-purpose visual for your cutting and pasting pleasure:
Oh, and Gus goes to bed at midnight, gets up at 8AM. His waking hours are not spent looking for work, but for stroking and waiting for a pat on the head from His Master Charles Johnson. “Sycophant” doesn’t describe Gus_802, but “Toady” and “Lickspittle” does.
