how dare you come into my mentions and say I’m not allowed to shitpost. I was there. I was there when hellhomer went down. I was there for goth ms frizzle’s mencia moment. I was there when the biggest weird twitter couple in New Orleans broke up. I was there when horse ebooks was revealed. I’m a ten year veteran of the posting wars

you call yourself a poster but did you even get an unsolicited dick pic from @dogboner in 2014?

you can come to me with opinions about “shit posting” when you show me receipts (that you got RTed by Eminemobama before he locked his account to patrons only)

@alex every time I mention "horse ebooks" to someone and they don't know what I mean I have a full-blown meltdown, and it has happened more than once IRL

@Pixley I simply do not talk to my wife about anything that I did on twitter

@alex oh my husband knew about horse ebooks because of the New Yorker article

@Pixley @alex my friend gave me a framed print out of the 'everything happens so much' post and its a fun convo starter with guests*

*i literally, literally, never have anyone over but if i did itd be fun to explain and watch them totally zone out

@swirlz @Pixley it turned out to be viral marketing for a novel or something? I don’t remember

@swirlz @alex @Pixley it was initially an ebooks bot from ebooks published through a publisher or something about horses. but then two viral marketer buzzfeed guys bought it and just posted random crap, they also ran that false pronunciation youtube channel

@wintgenstein @swirlz @alex @Pixley wasn't Susan Orleans involved somehow? I'm posting this before googling it

@alex i know what more than half of these things are and I am deeply upset with myself

@Aleums they got hired as a Hollywood screenwriter off posting and instantly were revealed as a serial joke thief

@alex @Aleums lol i only ever had like 30 followers on twitter and barely used it but the one time i got harassed it was by a bunch of gmf stans reading a reply i made in such bad faith it was actually impressive. and they were all doing the "lol this dumb bitch blocked me" thing when i decided to just not engage with it at all.
