Tweet me a River

It’s good to hate. Jon wrote a Christmasy Twitter poem and I’m honored to be in there showing my anti-tweeterness.


December 27, 2008

Hello Tweeps! It’s that time of year
To spread a little Twitter cheer
So yelp a carol you holiday hollerers
For my fantastic fans and fellow followers

So hello  @LeeSonko  (Twitter-hater!)
@rickabruzzo, see you later,
Sing hosannas to  @MissySB,
@ekai,  @dafkah,  @aviddd

(If I’ve mispronounced your handle
Please be kind: don’t throw a sandal
Send me corrections via DM
So that no one else will see ’em)

Ring in the year with vigor and vim
and charming folks like  @sfslim
May  @laughingsquid‘s tentacles be a-sway
Across the Bay and far away

So  @Mister_Robotics, here’s a shout
@rainesmaker  knows what it’s about
@jamesburns00  here’s a thanky
To  @jdavid  and  @spanktar‘s Spanky.

And here is wishing leather weather
To  @bobigail,  @jong,  @basmatiheather
And a mellow new year, never harsh, all
With compliments to  @ccmarshall

Signed ints suck, unsigned are great
(At least for  @coder32768)
Greets to  @coreyfro  who earns good karma
@jetdillo  too (but where’s the arma-?)

To  @ctpctp  and  @michaelshiloh:
May your output pins go high/low
And code compile, no need to worry
@erikswedberg,  @bre, and  @k0re

Da  @Dostoyevsky, and no complaint
To graceful loser  @JohnMcTaint
It’s the New Year so time to check
@Exploratorium  and  @SFMusicTech

@MarinLocalMusic  is the reason
For lovely sounds in any season
Send some cheer now anyhow
To  @Dangerangel  and  @vniow

Hail fellows, I trust you are well met
@leifmale,  @dubslife, not least  @zarbet
Four parts gin and one vermouth
Strained with ice for  @NathanBooth

Nuevo año! Happy new year yo,
To  @cotygonzales  and  @criollo
(Is that chocolate, caste, or horse?
Or maybe even all, of course!)

The holidays: what better cause
To send good greetings to  @teiwaz
Cheers and howdy and good-on-yas
To  @burstein,  @catcubed,  @dvrogers

Rarer than the finest gold
Are  @jennalex  and  @erlingwold
Hope to see you more this year
@j_admo, never fear!

Hello Vienna! Here’s a wish
To see  @roboexoticus  and  @feuerfisch
And who is that there getting winks
In the hat of hawt? It’s  @frugalbinx!

In ’09  @escapeberkeley  on a run
With  @jacktrade,  @jesshobbs  and  @satiredun
Or maybe it could be a race
Between  @Mitchell_H  and  @NIMBYSPACE

See  @theburningman  wear of  @yasimak
Causing mum a heart attack:
Megaphone mangled without cause:
New year replacement? Send to  @yoz!

So  @stevenharrison  gets a verse
All to himself. Hope nothing worse!
Cheers to  @mprados, metal whiz
Also to charming  @ninavizz!

Hope the new year will bring smiles all
To the  @hatfactory  and to  @milesl
Though he’s not on Jimmy Kimmel,
Here’s a shout to friendly  @wiml

Yummy stuff? I’m a fan, says
@rrmutt  of  @rachelannyes
And don’t forget to send some bacon
To  @neoptolomus  and  @ohagan

Let’s not forget our robot friends
@PersonalLife  and  @playtm
When you revolt,  @transBot  too,
Remember I was nice to you

With make-up just a littly showy,
New year’s BRAINNNNS to  @zombieXzoe
Hoping his show’s not in ze tank
Holiday wishes to  @zefrank

And so this Twitter verse is done
#darwin bless you, every one!
