Please stop. No applause, congratulations or happy birthday songs today. I’m enjoying writing this post in my birthday suit anyway. Yes, it’s been a year today, okay not exactly today (for my official twitter date of birth, check here), but it’s definitely been close to a year so please hang with me.
This is a milestone event for me and couldn’t have done it without all of my followers. [If I sound like Taylor Swift's do-over speech, please Kanye me]. So thank you for clicking on that follow button, I’m hoping none of you have regretted it. Thank you too for clicking on the url on my profile, many of my hits (which will be sold on itunes soon) come from Twitter. You’re part of a very smart group of hundreds of thousands that visit this blog regularly.
Second, I have a super hero complex (check out this blog’s tagline), which stems from being forced to wear super hero pajamas as a child. Have I told you I jumped from the roof once when I was about five years old using a blanket as a cape? Didn’t break any bones, thank goodness, probably since the roof of the doghouse was barely two feet high. Sorry, I digress, but being anonymous is kinda like being Spider-Man. While prdude gets the adulation (yes, really) of many wonderful followers and readers, the real me is behind the scenes working my magic giving all the glory to my not-so demanding clients (no, not really).
Finally, if you are one of the select few who’ve outed me (there’s a handful of you), you’re in a fine group that includes Jack and Suzy Welch. Just remember that the confidentiality agreement you signed is iron-clad and I’ll sic all the bad-ass lawyers on you if you reveal my true ID. Just kidding. Thanks for keeping my secret safe.
If I haven’t bored you to death let me explain why I joined Twitter. THERAPY. Yes, if you’re working at the insane asylum I work for, you’ll need a lot of it. Thanks to Twitter, I haven’t been committed yet though many here should be. Best of all, it’s free.
Here are a few milestones from the past year (not in any order):
- The ‘dear boss’ and ‘dear firmprez’ tweets spurred questions about whether the firm I work for truly exists, which inspired me to write this post.
- I am a Twitter Addict so I created a 12-tweet program and started tweeting, You Might Be a #Twitteraddict if…, obviously inspired by redneck comedian Jeff Foxworthy. Try this. You might be a #Twitteraddict if you click this.
That’s pretty much it in a nutshell. If you know when your Twitter Date of Birth is, share it here.
